Reports Food Poverty

Meals on wheels: good practice case studies

This short report presents six case studies of meals on wheels services from around the UK. The case studies include information on services’ reach, how they provide meals, the range of support they provide beyond the meals themselves and their hopes for the future.


This document will help:

  • Councillors, council officers and commissioners to learn more about successful services, including those providing ‘more than meals’
  • Providers, social enterprises, community organisations and advocates to learn more about different service models to develop and champion
