Fair Meals Direct is a brand new service working to get hearty, healthy, locally-produced food to some of Carlisle’s most vulnerable people.
Fair Meals Direct – which has taken over from Cumbria County Council ‘Meals on Wheels’ service – is a not-for-profit scheme set up to help ensure that specially prepared, nutritious meals are available to people in the city who are not able to make such food for themselves.
All meals offered by the new service are prepared using produce sourced from within a 30-mile radius of Carlisle – reducing food miles, helping the environment, helping to ensure a market for local food producers and providing a boost to the Cumbrian economy.
Advanced in partnership, the meals are prepared by a professional chef based at the Water Street family centre in Carlisle, from where they are delivered to homes across the city by a team of volunteers, having a key link in positively impacting on our Healthy City agenda.
Anyone wishing to sign up to Fair Meals Direct will be given a menu each week, from which they can simply select the meals they would like to order. The food is seasonal, menus are changed regularly, vegetarian options are available and specific dietary requirements can be catered for. Meals are available from Monday to Friday – however, people are not required to order food every day.
