Community Meals Leeds

​​

Community Meals Leeds is part of Leeds City Council. We provide tasty, nutritious meals delivered directly to your door whilst at the same time ensuring a regular visitor checks that you or someone you care about is safe and well. You can have meals as often as you want – one day a week or every day and these can be delivered 365 days a year.

Menu choices and special dietary needs


Our standard menu (PDF 165kb) offers a choice of three main courses each day, plus a selection of two hot desserts.

We have a wide variety of menus and choices to suit most dietary needs and preferences. These include Kosher, Halal, vegetarian, Asian and Caribbean/West Indian meals. We also cater for special dietary needs, with a range of texture-modified meals for people who have identified swallowing difficulties, with both soft and pureed menu options available.

The majority of our menu options can be found within the Documents section on this page, however others are available on request, including diabetic, moderate salt, gluten free, low fat, and dairy free options, along with others for people with ethical or health-related dietary requirements. Please use the contact details in the Contact us section on this page if you can’t find what you are looking for.
