Meals on Wheels

We say that our Meals on Wheels service is more than just a meal. This is because we help to tackle isolation and loneliness, which are extremely common for older people.

More than just a meal

At Harrogate Neighbours we’re very proud of our award-winning Meals on Wheels service, also known as Harrogate and Ripon Food Angels.

Our service

We established our Meals on Wheels service in 2012. The closure of the council-run meals on wheels service left a real gap, and we wanted to respond to local demand. Our team of dedicated volunteers now deliver over 100 homemade meals every day.

We say that our Meals on Wheels service is More Than Just a Meal. This is because we help to tackle isolation and loneliness, which are extremely common for older people. Our volunteers provide much needed social contact. They are also trained to spot potential safety hazards and check on our clients’ well-being. Any concerns can then be mentioned to family members or the relevant health professionals.

Our food

Diet and nutrition are very important at any age, and in later years it’s even more important to eat well. Many older people become unable to prepare hot meals for themselves and this can have an adverse effect on their health. Our hot meal delivery service means that older people have a fresh, hot meal every day.

All our Meals on Wheels are prepared from fresh ingredients at The Cuttings. Our catering team are dedicated to creating a variety of nutritious and filling meals.
