Meals on Wheels

Meals on Wheels may be available for people who:

Your doctor or health professional can refer you for Meals on Wheels or you can refer yourself. The Canterbury DHB subsidises Meals on Wheels but there is a small cost, which is subject to change.

To find out more, see Meals on Wheels or phone (03) 335‑4443.

If you aren't eligible or prefer not to use Meals on Wheels, alternative home-delivered meal services (this link downloads a list) are available but the costs aren't subsidised.
