Australian Red Cross Delivered Meals
Delivered Meals provides a nutritious two or three course meal direct to your door. Our service is more than just a meal. Our friendly volunteers will also check in on you when they deliver your meals – they stop and say ‘hi’ and check how you’re doing.
Delivered Meals are available on short or long term basis and can be delivered as often as you like each week, Monday to Friday. Under some circumstances, frozen meals can be delivered. Talk to our friendly staff.
Australian Red Cross complies with the Delivered Meals Standards Code of Practice and the Food Safety Act.
