Delivered meals

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.
