Providing healthy meals and friendship to older people in Galway

Our Community Catering service prepares and delivers healthy meals to older people across Galway city and parts of the county. The meals are nutritionally balanced to suit older people and cater for a range of medically related dietary meal requirements.

Our objective is to enable older people to live independently in their homes as long as possible by providing for their nutritional and social requirements.

Meals are prepared fresh every day in our modern, custom built kitchen in Ballybane and delivered to homes. Our food is always locally sourced, seasonal and completely fresh. We do not use frozen food in our kitchen.

The service is great.  I know my mother is getting a nutrition dinner every day and the volunteers are checking in on her.  It is reassuring as I live away and can’t be there.
