Fresh Meals Service (Delivery) 

Our Fresh Meals Service can deliver two-course meals right to your door, 365 days a year. This is similar to a traditional 'meals on wheels' service, but it is not frozen or processed food, but meals cooked that day using fresh local produce, carefully prepared in our five-star kitchens.

From April 2019  the cost of an individual delivered meal from Monday to Friday is £7.90. and for week-ends and bank holidays the charge is £8.40.

For couples we have a special price of £14.30 for Monday to Friday only, and for week-ends and bank holiays £14.80

A couple is defined as requiring two meals, delivered on the same day, to the same address.

Snack PackWe can also offer a daily 'Sandwich Snack Pack' for £4.50 per pack. The pack can only be delivered with your main meal order. The sandwiches are made fresh on the day, dated and sealed in a bag for your fridge. The pack also includes a biscuit, cake, packet of crisps, and a drink.

Our fresh meals customers asked us to provide a snack pack so they could put it in the fridge to consume later in the day e.g. a light snack at suppertime. This is a very popular service.

Age UK North West Kent deliver 40,000-45,000 meals a year to people in the North West Kent area and are continually growing to reach even more people.

If you would like to see the menu for this week or would like some more information about our service, our five-star kitchens, or whether we can deliver to you, please visit our Fresh Meals Service page.
