Community Meals

What does it do?

If you are eligible for community meals we can arrange the delivery of appetising, nutritious, frozen
meals fortnightly. Both hot and frozen meals are provided by our preferred supplier, Apetito. Any
frozen meals are delivered to clients by Devon Maid / Wiltshire Farm Foods on Apetito’s behalf.

If you are eligible for community meals but are not able to re-heat them safely, a hot, two course
meal can be delivered to you at lunchtime, or other arrangements can be made to make sure you
receive a meal.

Who it is for?

Eating well is an important factor in maintaining good health. If you have difficulty preparing or cooking meals and you do not have a friend, relative or neighbour available to help, you may be eligible for community meals.

Hot meal – delivered, £4.00 per meal.
