Summer Meals Scheme

Free, healthy meals for collection during the summer

Working together with Hertsmere Borough Council, we are delivering freshly cooked meals in cool boxes from Akshaya Patra kitchens in Watford to four hubs in Hertsmere.

The fresh meals are distributed from the hubs for residents who feel impacted by the cost-of-living crisis.


Who can use this service?

Anyone who is acutely impacted by the cost-of-living crisis can use this service. Though this service is used primarily by families, the elderly, and vulnerable individuals, people come from all walks of life and nobody will be turned away.


Is there a charge for this service?

There is no charge.
