Food Services

Council's Food Services are available to assist people who find it difficult to prepare regular meals at home.

We are able to provide a range of meal options to support your nutritional requirements.

This service may be required for a short time or may be ongoing.

Food services options include:

Delivered Meals

A three-course meal delivered (chilled) to your home, for you to heat at your convenience.

If required, we can also help you heat the meal. Flexible meal delivery arrangements are available between  Monday to Friday with extra chilled meals delivered during the week for the following weekend. 

Centre-based Meals

A lunchtime meal is available Monday to Friday at the Collingwood and Richmond Senior Citizens Centres.

In-home Preparations

In-home meal preparation may be arranged as part of a personal care services.

Shopping Assistance

For those people who require assistance with shopping, a weekly door-to-door shopping trip is made to local shopping centres using Council’s community bus.

There is a range of other meal options that are not directly provided by Council. Council staff can give you information about these services if needed.
