The Greek Meals Service is funded by the Department for Families and Communities under the Home and Community Care Program (HACC). This is a Commonwealth and State Government funded program designed to assist the frail aged, people with disabilities and their carers, enabling them to remain in their own home, and often preventing premature admission to other forms of care.
The Greek Meals Service provides cultural, well-balanced and nutritious 3-course meals in conjunction with greatly appreciated social interaction from our wonderful Volunteers. All the meals are delivered by our volunteers throughout the Adelaide Metropolitan area.
What do the meals consist of?
The 3-course meal consists of a combination of a salad, soup, main course or dessert and accounts for approximately a third of an elderly person’s daily nutritional and energy requirements.
We are able to cater for people with special dietary requirements, such as those with diabetes, and can provide meals for the long or short term.
When are the meals delivered?
Delivery times are between 10:30am and 12.30pm Monday to Friday. Frozen/cold meals are available for weekends and public holidays. 24 hours’ notice is required in the event of a meal cancellation.
How can I receive meals?
The Greek Meals Service is provided following referral from My Aged Care. Once the referral is received by the Greek Welfare Centre a Project Officer will visit the service user to assess their individual needs and organise the service.
