Meals on Wheels is one of the ways in which we can help you maintain a healthy, independent lifestyle.

Severe Weather Service Update:

The council is closely monitoring the latest weather forecast and, based on the local and national updates, is preparing for a period of significant snowfall.

In order to provide clients with meals we will be delivering meals for Thursday, Friday and the weekend on Thursday, 1st March. Thursdays meal will be hot, Fridays meal will be chilled and weekend meals will be either chilled or frozen.

The community meal service can be contacted on 01443 744150.

A further update will be issued on Monday, 5th March and will take into account forecast updates.

We provide a two course hot meal, prepared locally with fresh ingredients, in the middle of the day, Monday to Friday between 11.30am and 2.15 pm, (except bank holidays). Two additional chilled meals can be delivered on Fridays for you to eat over the weekend.

The meal service is available to people over the age of 60 who live in Rhondda Cynon Taf. However, meals can be delivered to people under the age of 60 who have been assessed as needing this service because of disability or illness.

Meals can be provided on a short or long-term basis, depending on your present circumstances.

The meal is supplied in a special recyclable container with a filmed lid. We recommend that the hot meal should be eaten as soon as delivered and the chilled meal stored in a refrigerator and reheated in a microwave until piping hot.

Menus and choices

Most people using this service order 7 meals every week (Monday to Sunday). You do not have to and you can vary the days each week that you want us to deliver your meals. Please try to let us know in advance about the meals you want and the days you want them.

How much will I have to pay?

We try to keep costs low. There is a charge of £3.45 per meal for this service. We hope you will find it good value. Please pay for your meals beforehand (for the week) preferably on your first day of delivery. Alternatively, we can bill you or a relative at the end of each month on our statement scheme.
