Community Meals

The service offers a choice of hot main courses and puddings. Our contract with Agincare ensures that all meals meet full nutritional requirements. We are working in partnership with Agincare to deliver a community meals service, seven days a week, 365 days a year (including bank holidays and Christmas Day).

We are able to provide meals suitable for diabetics, vegetarians and other specific dietary needs and preferences, including culturally appropriate meals through accredited suppliers.

 To be eligible for the community meals service, you need to be assessed by the County Council.  You can request an assessment by contacting the Council's Access Centre by telephone on 0845 607 2000 or email socialcare@worcestershire.gov.uk.
