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 contributing to their nutritional and social requirements.

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