Sodexho has won a three-year contract worth £2.3m in total to deliver home meals to residents in Walsall in the west Midlands.
The caterer will provide approximately 350 of the council's residents with 175,000 lunches and dinners a year.
It will start in December with a range of hot and frozen meals on offer from roast dinners and vegetarian options to medical diet meals, delivered by a team of drivers in a fleet of vehicles able to heat the food en route.
Kathy McAteer, Walsall Council acting executive director for social care and inclusion, said: "We are pleased to be working in partnership with a company with such a good reputation as Sodexho who following an exhaustive evaluation process were awarded the contract to provide the new community meals service."
Mike Fox-Davies, Sodexho director of private hospitals, seniors and home service, said: "Our aim is to ensure the service users receive a responsive service that allows them independence and dignity."
