Meals on Wheels
Our goal is to provide a community-led service that offers nutritious meals, friendly visits and safety checks to older and vulnerable people helping them to live independently with support.
This may be the one meal that our clients may have in the day. Our meals are prepared using high-quality ingredients for best nutritional value for the health and recovery of our clients. When the meal is being delivered, our driver, with consent, will also check on the person to make sure he/she is okay.
If you would like to get a meal for yourself, a neighbour or a loved one , do not hesitate to contact us with your name, address, and telephone number.
All our meals are highly nutritious, made daily with fresh good quality ingredients . The cost of a meal is €5 – this includes starter, main course, and dessert.
If you have any special dietary requirements or food intolerances/allergies, please tell us so we can tailor your meal to suit you.
Meals can be provided on a daily, weekly or longer-term basis.
