City Catering > About Us

Nutritious hot food, delivered with care

Providing meals for Southampton's residents

City Catering Southampton is the city’s primary ‘meals on wheels’ service, delivering hot nutritious meals direct to our customers’ homes, and also to SCA and Age UK Southampton lunch clubs around the city.

Our great-tasting meals are available to Council-referred customers and private customers alike. Clubs and social groups too.

And delivery is free.

The meals we serve are made using quality ingredients, and are nutritionally balanced to provide 33% of your daily dietary needs.

We serve a wide range of nutritious meals, to suit every taste and dietary need – and we really do care. Making a difference in our customers’ lives is the foundation of what we do. Without a hot, healthy meal at lunchtime, the health of vulnerable adults inevitably suffers, and their resilience is undermined. We make it our mission to help those customers live independently and stay well. And when they’re off colour, we’re there to raise a flag.

I hope you enjoy exploring our Care Meals website – it’s been created from the heart, entirely with you in mind.

Warmest wishes,
Rachel Hall, CEO
