Home meals

The home meal service supports Helsinki residents of various ages, the elderly and convalescents in their well-being and living at home.  Our home meals are tasty, traditional Finnish food that meets the nutritional recommendations, is prepared in our kitchen and delivered to the client’s home, requiring only heating.

The portions consist of a main dish, salad or fresh juice, and dessert. All our meals are lactose-free. We also take into consideration clients’ special dietary requirements and needs, such as those related to food texture.

Our daily menus include 1–3 meal options. The menus are delivered to clients on a weekly basis. Clients with special diets receive personal menus that display the meal options suitable for them.

Based on orders, the meals are delivered cold to clients 1–2 times a week between 9:00 and 17:00. Deliveries take place on weekdays and mid-week holidays if the holiday occurs on an agreed date of delivery.

The home meal service is primarily ordered through the City of Helsinki home care services, which also helps to subsidise the cost of the meal service.
