Delivered Meals

Delivered Meals in Beaufort and Skipton is a Shire service, delivered from the Health Service with the assistance of our Volunteer Drivers.

Delivered Meals is a home-based service delivering hot, nutritious meals to people who are homebound or find it difficult to cook for themselves. While the program is delivered through the Health Service, using Health Service volunteers to deliver meals which are prepared in the hospital kitchens, it is a Shire program; the Shire assesses eligibility and sets the price for the meals.

Several different meal types are available. These include everything from a three-course meal (soup, mains, and sweet) with juice and/or fruit, to just a main meal, or main and dessert, etc. Hot meals can be delivered 5 days a week, and there is also an option to have frozen meals delivered for the weekend. The price varies according to the meal type required and according to the frequency of delivery.

To organise meals or for further information it is necessary to contact your local Shire and ask to speak with a Home and Community Care worker.
