    Regular subscription

    Thought it would be a nice idea to do a subscription as an option. We often provide meals for people, a delivery a week, for a month. But spend a lot of time trying to make sure we remember to all again for every week. Just a thought 💭

    Thank you!

    I've sent a few of your care packages to colleagues and the feedback has been overwhelmingly good. I was lucky enough to receive one myself while recuperating from knee surgery.....I thought I made a good lasagne...yours is next level. So much so that I hid the leftovers so I didn't have to share! As a sender, I particularly like being kept updated about delivery. As a receiver, the packaging is great and the instructions etc. Keep doing what you are doing, it's awesome. Any chance you can share the lasagne recipe???

    meal delivery

    The recipient of the meal delivery said it wasn't as good as the previous gift from Angel Delivery. The lasagne was all meat and no pasta. Everything else in the meal pack was good!

    Sympathy gift for friends

    This hamper was extremely well received by our friends who commented the kids really loved the meals, not to mention the extra treats. Thanks Angel delivery!

    Delivered with love for you, and the environment

    We strive to minimize the environmental impact of all we do at Angel Delivery. Not only is our packaging recyclable and compostable, but we are also very careful in our supply chain - from where our meal ingredients are sourced, to how they are produced and packaged, and how they are ultimately delivered to you.
