Meals on Wheels

City Catering Southampton act as agent of Southampton City Council in the operation of a Meals on Wheels service, supplying nutritional meals to residents throughout Southampton. They offer a wide variety of tasty dishes for you to choose from and cater for a range of dietary requirements. For more information, please visit the City Care Meals on Wheels website.

Their friendly drivers will deliver hot meals direct to your home on our behalf, Monday to Friday. If you require meals at the weekend, frozen meals can be provided to be reheated. This will depend on your circumstances, including whether you have access to a freezer, cooker or microwave.

Reduced rates for referred customers

Southampton City Council residents may be eligible to get this service at a reduced rate if you meet the following criteria:

  • You are living alone and are unable to cook for yourself
  • A doctor has recommended that a meal is provided for you
  • You have a short-term need, for example, you have recently been in hospital
  • Providing you with a meal will assist your carer(s)

To find out if you are eligible for the subsidised rate, initially you should complete a self-assessment. The results can then be referred on to adult social care services to arrange a full assessment.
