The support for NDIS services varies from person to person and is related to a person's disability and what support is required for them to live comfortably and assist them to achieve their goals. Delivered ready-made meals, such as We Feed You are covered under “Core Supports” and “Daily Activities” in your plan.
Meals can only be provided to those where meals are considered necessary in your plan. In this case, the NDIS will cover the cost of the meal preparation, packaging and delivery and the participant is required to cover the cost of ingredients.
Whilst We Feed You have lots of NDIS customers we are not currently a registered provider so participants need to be either self or plan managed.

How much will meals cost?
NDIS will cover the preparation, packaging and delivery of meals. A small co-payment to cover the cost of ingredients is the responsibility of the participant. This is around $3 - $4 per meal - it varies depending on the type and number of meals ordered. For sample packages view here.
Where can I obtain a quote?
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the participants name, NDIS number, number of meals per week or fortnight and delivery postcode.
Who chooses my meals?
You can choose your own meals from our online, seasonal menu and order what you need. You can change your options each week/fortnight or stay with a consistent menu of your choice. We can discuss what will work best for you.
Do you cater for different dietary needs or food intolerances?
We certainly do. All our meals are labelled and we have a dietitian on our team who designs the meals to ensure a range of dietary needs are catered for.
How do I know if I am eligible for home delivered meals on my plan?
To be eligible for ready made, home delivered meals, your NDIS plan needs to include Daily Activities in your Core Support. If you’re unsure if your plan includes these, check with your Plan Manager.
Do I need to lock into a contract?
NO, you can try the meals and decide if you wish to continue or not. If you wish to set up a regular, weekly, fortnightly or monthly order then we can set this up for you. Contact email@example.com
How does payment work?
At the moment there are two different ways your co-payment can be made, depending on your plan.
- If you are on a Self-Managed plans, you make the full payment to us up front, and we provide you with an itemised tax receipt to claim to NDIS.
- Plan Managed: you can order the meals online paying for the cost of ingredients and your plan managers will invoiced for the outstanding amount.
We suggest you talk to your Plan Manager to check if you are eligible and to discuss your options. We are looking to become an official NDIS provider and will update the site once this is done.
