Food Services

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. 

Delivered Meals

We deliver fresh, nutritous three-course meals to your home. These meals are delivered cold to be reheated later at your convenience.

Availability
Meals are available Monday to  Friday.  Meals for Saturday and Sunday are available and delivered on Fridays.

Menu
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).

Delivery
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.
