Nutritious, great tasting, convenient and affordable meals are provided to you in your home at a low cost.
The City of Greater Geelong currently provides more than 1,000
meals a week to senior residents and people with disabilities and their carers
through our Delivered Meals service (Meals on Wheels).
The service provides eligible residents with fresh and tasty
meals at a low cost while also providing a source of community connection.
We know that Meals on Wheels is about much more than just food delivery and we never want that to change. The meals are delivered by local drivers employed through Choice Fresh Meals.
Each driver will have a chat, get to know each client, and look out for their wellbeing.
For any questions or to find out if you are eligible for this
service, please contact the Community Care Intake Officer on 03
5272 4677 during business hours.
The Delivered Meals
program can be funded by individuals or by various aged care or disability packages.
Please visit the My Aged Care website or call the My Aged Care contact
centre on 1800 200 422 to help you find out about aged care services, and what
services may be available to help you.
The Choice Fresh Meals menu is updated with the season:
- January (Summer)
- March (Autumn)
- June (Winter)
- September (Spring)December (Christmas).
All meals are made using only the freshest ingredients and are delivered chilled, so they are easy to re-heat.
The menus cater to a variety of dietary or cultural preferences and are diabetic friendly. Special needs such as texture modification are easily accommodated.
Fees for the delivered meals service (previously known as meals on wheels) are very reasonable and are worked out based on your income and in line with the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) Fees Framework.
The Choice Fresh Meals delivery days for metro Geelong will be Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Deliveries to The Bellarine will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
