Meals on Wheels WRVS

What does it do?

We provide hot and cold meals, desserts and more, with free home delivery Monday to Friday between 11.30am–1.30pm. With every delivery, our caring WRVS drivers carry out a ‘safe and well check’.
The new Meals on Wheels’ menus cater for people who require meals and desserts that are:

diabetic;
lower fat;
gluten-free;
reduced salt;
pureed; or 
vegetarian.

The menus also include: kosher, Caribbean/West Indian and halal meals. 
The service is very flexible, so you can have a meal just for 1 day or the whole week. We also provide the same meals frozen. They are easily cooked in the oven or in the microwave.

Additional information:

County Council, in partnership with the WRVS , is relaunching the Meals on Wheels service. Anyone who is eligible can order and people do not have to be referred.
Our dietician approved menus aim to give at least a third of people’s requirements for energy, calcium, iron, zinc, folate and vitamin C.
Ordering our tasty and nutritious meals can be a short-term option for anyone leaving hospital or those recovering from an illness, or as a permanent arrangement for those who can no longer cook for themselves.
