Our Delivered Meals food services are available to those people who are nutritionally at risk and are unable to prepare regular meals as a result of fragility or sickness.
We deliver fresh, nutritous three-course meals to your home. These meals are delivered cold to be reheated later at your convenience.
Meals are available Monday to Friday. Meals for Saturday and Sunday are available and delivered on Fridays.
Delivered meals operate on a four-week menu.
Menu choices are over seven days, on a four-week cycle. Seasonal changes are made to the meny every three-months. The delivered meals menu provides extensive daily choices to suit all tastes and dietary requirements (i.e. Halal).
Meals are delivered between 9.30am and 12.30pm. You must be home to receive your meal.
Please cancel your meal if you are not going to be home. If staff cannot reach you at home, they will follow an emergency procedure to ensure you are safe.
Centre Based Meal Program
The Centre Based Meal Program aims to provide isolated elderly, and people with a disability, the opportunity to have a healthy, culturally specific, nutritionally-valued three-course meal.
This weekly program brings together isolated members of the community to establish friendships and share in information to promote health and wellbeing.

If you require assistance with shopping, a regular community bus door-to-door shopping trip is made to local shopping centres in some areas.
