apetito Hot Meal Delivery Service

Hot meals, with a welfare check, delivered to your door

What does it do?

We deliver meals to your door that are piping hot and ready to eat, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Our drivers are fully DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checked, and will perform a safety and wellbeing check when they deliver your meal, and will contact your next of kin or social services if there are any concerns. We will also plate your meal or fetch a glass of water if required. 

Our delicious meals include a hot or cold dessert, and for a small extra charge, we can also provide you with a tasty teatime pack. 

Who it is for?

Our meals service is available to anyone and is an ideal choice for those who, for one reason or another, aren't able to cook for themselves, for example the elderly or vulnerable, or people who have just come out of hospital. Every member of our team has received comprehensive training on diet and nutrition, including the needs of people with dementia.

We can deliver food every day, or just once in a while, and you won't have to sign a contract or commit to a set number of deliveries a week.
