Food services

Food services are available to those who are nutritionally at risk and unable to prepare regular meals as a result of illness or disability. We will attempt to assist you to meet your nutritional requirements in a manner that suits you.

Delivered meals

A chilled three-course meal delivered to your home, to heat at your convenience. If required, we can also help you heat the meal. In special circumstances, meals can be delivered hot. Meals are delivered Monday to Friday, with extra chilled meals delivered on Friday for the weekend.

Centre-based meals

A lunchtime meal is available Monday to Friday at the Collingwood, Richmond and Carlton Senior Citizen’s Centres.

In-home preparations

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

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 community meal options available within Yarra that are not directly provided by the City of Yarra. Our staff can give you information about these services if needed.
