Meals on wheels
|Who can get meals on wheels|
Anyone living in the Hampshire County Council area who is aged 55 or more can choose to receive Meals on Wheels if they have certain needs:
The meals are provided by our partner company apetito.
You can choose your main course and pudding from a menu of four options.
Afternoon teas are delivered at the same time as the lunch time meal and offer a choice of savoury pastry, sandwich and cake as well as a portion of fruit.
Deliveries are made 365 days a year, in an agreed slot between 11:30am and 2pm each day.
|Special needs and services|
The driver will be able to cut up the meals, provide a drink, and encourage eating when required. They will also know what to do when they notice a cause for concern.
Hot lunches can be delivered directly to your lunch club at no extra cost. For more information contact apetito directly.
The service can provide special dietary and faith need meals. All meals meet the National Association of Care Catering guidelines and are nutritionally balanced.
You can arrange for a Food and Friendship volunteer to visit at regular intervals to make lunchtimes more enjoyable. The volunteer will chat with the customer and provide information about what is going on in the local area.
