Fruit & Vegetable Deliveries
South Eastern Community Connect delivers fresh produce right to your door.
We buy fresh, in-season produce, direct from local suppliers, and deliver it across south-east Sydney (and some parts of the Inner West) to our senior clients.
One-to-one assisted shopping for over-65s
With this service you can do your own shopping with the support of one of our aged care workers.
We’ll pick you up at home, help with your shopping, and take you and your groceries back home when we’re done.
There’s a $12 fee for this weekly or fortnightly service.
Want your shopping done?
All you have to do is provide us with a list and your groceries will be delivered to your door in a COVID-safe way for the cost of the groceries plus a small delivery/ shopping fee. Contact us here for more information.
Meal preparation help
If you’d like a hand preparing your food and cooking up your meals, we can help you.
One of our staff can visit you in your home and help you prepare your food at a cost of only $10 per two-hour session.
If you need a longer, two-hour session, the cost to you is only $15.
At South Eastern Community Connect, we’re here to help. Contact us here for more information on any of the above services.
If you’d like to enquire about our subsidised fruit and vegetable boxes, which are available to people who’ve registered on My Aged Care, call Irene on (02) 8338 8506 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: The fruit and veg box is $15 (up from $12, as of March 2023) delivered to people who have a My Aged Care referral (for those accessing it who are under 65 it is $20). If you have a Home Care Package the price will differ and can be discussed with their provider. Help with meal prep is $15 for a session (the session is 2 hours) and list shopping is the cost of the groceries plus $7 for the shopping and delivery service.
