Providing home made meals to support families, through times of hardship, be that serious illness, or financial challenges.
The service allows families to sit down at least once a week to share a nutritious and home-made meal, together as a family, without the worry of having to cook or spend money on ingredients. The service is for a minimum of 6 weeks, and support can be extended if necessary.
We receive referrals for families through a number of partners we work with, who are also involved with caring for families in Jersey.
How does it work?
We receive a referral, and will contact the family to ascertain dietary requirements and any strong dislikes for certain foods. We want to make sure that the families will eat the meals we prepare, so there is no point in cooking something they won’t eat.
Each week we will call our families to let them know what’s on the menu so they can make their selection. The meal is then prepared and delivered on a Saturday from our weekly kitchen at Le Rocquier School, by our kind team of volunteers.
If you are an agency or a charity in Jersey who would like to refer a family to us, please get in touch. Unfortunately we cannot accept direct requests for assistance.
