Meal Delivery

Homefare is a meal delivery service, providing a hot meal and dessert fresh from the Allenbrook kitchen. This home delivery service is offered seven days a week, (including Bank Holidays and Christmas) to residents in the Fordingbridge, Alderholt and Sandleheath areas.

Choice and quality

The menus are carefully planned to provide a balanced and interesting diet. On offer each day are two courses with a choice of main meal, plus a selection of desserts or the option of cheese and biscuits or fresh fruit. Whilst delivering your lunch, we also offer the option of having a sandwich delivered as a snack for later in the day.


Homefare customers range from those who rely on a hot meal being delivered every day to those who simply fancy an occasional treat. There are also those who are temporarily unable to cook and just need some help for a short while. Allenbrook provides a flexible service, able to take orders up to 10am on the day of delivery, with deliveries scheduled between midday and 1pm.

Peace of mind

All delivery drivers are first aid qualified, DBS checked and are trained in how to respond should a customer appear unwell or unable to answer the door. Emergency contact details are held for all customers should such circumstances arise, so a family member, neighbour or emergency service, can be informed as part of this facility.

At present, unfortunately not. Delivering outside the immediate area lengthens the delivery round and leads to late deliveries to our local customers. However, if there is sufficient interest we may be able to expand in the future.
