City Care Meals on Wheels Service

Southampton City Care meals will supply a hot meal directly to your home, five days a week, Monday to Friday.

If meals are required at weekends, frozen meals can be provided to be reheated. This also depends on your circumstances, such as, available freezer, cooker or microwave, required to defrost and reheat meals. This will be discussed during your assessment; assessments will be required for everyone referred to City Care Meals.
