Meals on wheels

This service is designed to provide a hot meal at midday for those that find it difficult to prepare their own meal. This could be temporary while recovering from injury or surgery, or long term due to age or disability.


The meals on wheels service delivers meals to most areas of Hamilton by friendly Red Cross volunteers right to your door each day, Monday to Friday, and frozen meals are available for weekends and public holidays.

The meals cost $8.50 and you DO NOT need a referral.

The selective menu consists of a hot main dish served with seasonal vegetables followed by a delicious dessert – all for $8.50 GST inclusive.
