What does it do?

Meals can be delivered weekly, fortnightly or monthly, depending on he supplier you choose.

A booklet has been produced which lists key information about each supplier to assist clients in making a choice that best suits their taste, lifestyle and diet. You can download this step-by-step guide from http://www.bexley.gov.uk/CHttpHandler.ashx?id=1939&p=0
