Shopping and Meal Delivery Services

Pre-prepared hot meals can be delivered daily 7 days a week.  Special dietary needs such as diabetic, vegetarian, gluten free, halal can usually be catered for.

The cost of home delivery can vary - ask for a quote.  Before you commit to a service you can ask to see menus and request a trial meal to find out if you like the food and service.  You should also ask:

  • about their food safety and nutrition policies
  • if their staff are vetted and have had a Criminal Records Bureau Check
  • if their drivers carry out a 'safety and well-being check' each visit and if they will notify your next of kin if they are worried

Some companies deliver pre-prepared frozen meals to your home for you to reheat as required.  Deliveries can be made weekly or fortnightly.  They may also be able to lend you appliances to heat or freeze meals.

Follow the link below for further information or check the Yellow Pages or to find other home food delivery services.
