A new meals on wheels service will be delivering in Uckfield from Monday, April 1.
Hot meals, prepared in a kitchen at Hailsham, and cooked in purpose-built electric oven vans can be delivered to you seven days a week, 365 days a year, between 11.30am and 2.30pm.
“Whether you are the first to receive your meal, or the last, your meal will be served at the perfect temperature,” said Greg Livermore, manager at License to Freeze Meals on Wheels.
Or, if you prefer, your meal can be provided ready for the freezer to be cooked in your own oven or microwave when you wish.
License to Freeze Meals on Wheels was set up in Hailsham three years ago. It has five vans going out each day and three more ready for new routes.
There is no contract to be signed and people do not have to commit to a minimum number of meals to take advantage of the service.
All you have to do is call License to Freeze by 10am to place an order and it will be with you that lunchtime.
The menu, which can be seen on the Licence to Freeze website, includes hot meals, salads, and sandwiches. A main course costs £6.50 and a dessert £2. Freshly made sandwiches are £3.
Greg said that the company’s drivers carry out welfare checks for families of elderly customers as they deliver meals and if there is cause for concern they report this back for action.
“This is part of our service and useful to give relatives peace of mind,” said Greg.
