Meals service

If you are unable to shop or prepare meals yourself our Meals Service can bring them directly to your home.

You can choose what you would like to eat from a wide selection of menu choices, and the meals are delivered to you once every two weeks. They are stored in your freezer, and heated from frozen in a microwave or normal oven.

The Meals Service is provided by Apetito on behalf of Perth & Kinross Council. Meals will be delivered to you by Wiltshire Farm Foods.

How does the Meals Service work?

The service is available wherever you live in Perth and Kinross.

When you join the service, you will receive a menu and order forms, so you can choose and order the meals you want. You can choose what and when you want to eat.

A driver from Wiltshire Farm Foods will deliver your meals to your home once every two weeks. You can then give the driver your order for the next two weeks. If you do not put a new order, you will get a repeat of your last order.

How much does it cost?

Meals are charged at a flat rate of £2.88 per meal (cost as of April 2014); each meal includes two courses, either soup and a main, or main and a dessert.
