Meals on wheels
Who can get meals on wheels?
You can get meals on wheels if you are any elderly person or an adult with a disability, chronic illness, mental health issue or dementia.
We can supply meals for the long-term or to cover short-term situations such as after a fracture, or while you re-learn cooking skills after a stroke.
What are the meals like?
We provide you with tasty, nutritious lunch time meals each day if cooking for yourself is too difficult. Our meals are:
- tasty and nutritious
- made using fresh ingredients and seasonal vegetables
We can supply meals to suit any dietary need including:
- traditional meat or fish dish with potatoes and other vegetables
- hot and cold sweets
- special diets for specific medical conditions
- meals suitable for a soft food diet
When are they delivered?
Our meals are delivered between 11.30am and 1.30pm every day except Christmas and New Year's day. We deliver hot meals to you in your home. The meals come in foil containers, a bit like a supermarket ready meal, already warmed and ready to eat.
Is there a charge?
There is a charge for meals on wheels of £2.80 for a main course and £0.95 for a soup or sweet. There are currently 2 payment methods:
- payment following receipt of an invoice
- vouchers which can be bought at any Post Office in Fife
