Meals at Home (Meals on Wheels)  

We supply ready-made meals, direct to your home to help you to stay living as independently as possible in your own home.

What are our meals like?

Our meals are:

  •  tasty and nutritious
  •  varied
  •  made using fresh ingredients and seasonal vegetables.

We have several different ranges. From your everyday needs to special occasions we can provide you with a meal for any situation.

We also have meals suitable for a range of different diets.

How do I choose the meals I want?

Look through our brochure and select the meals you want. You can then order in three ways:

  • Use the online form to get in touch with us.
  • Telephone 01623 49 00 15 and tell us what you want.
  • If you are an existing customer you can give your new order to the person who delivers your meals.

How do we deliver the meals?

This depends on your needs and personal situation.


Most people have their meals delivered several at a time. From experience people prefer this for several reasons:

  • you can choose which meal you want to eat on which day, at a time to suit you
  • you can order the number of meals you want to suit your storage capacity (minimum of 3 meals)
  • you don't have to wait in for a delivery every day
  • the delivery day is arranged for your convenience and can be from twice a week to once a month.


In some circumstances people need a daily delivery of a hot meal.

Contact us and talk about what your needs are. We can then advise on what's best for you.

How can I pay for my meals?

There are four ways to pay:

  • direct debit
  • credit card
  • debit card
  • monthly invoice.

Our drivers are unable to accept cash from customers when they deliver meals.

What are the advantages of using the Meals at Home service?

Home from hospital hamper scheme

If you have been in hospital and are returning home we can deliver your shopping along with your first hot meal. Just select on the order form what you need to help you over the first few days, and we will be happy to shop and deliver it straight to your door.

Lunch clubs

Lunch clubs are an informal opportunity for people to get together at a local venue. They are usually for people aged 65 and over and are not run by Nottinghamshire County Council.

A cooked lunch will usually be followed by recreational activities such as cards, games and so on. Many lunch clubs are able to cater for special diets. There will usually be a charge to attend a lunch club. 

Lunch Club organisers

The Meals at Home service can supply meals to lunch clubs where there are limited catering facilities or where users have particular dietry needs that are difficult to cater for. If you are running a lunch club contact us to talk about your needs.
