Thanks to £30,000 from the National Lottery and a donation from Dover District Council, Meals on the Hill is now providing three meals a week to up to 100 people who have registered with them.

The packages of three 'make your own' meals contain a variety of dishes. An example for next week includes: one refrigerated vegetable and cheese quiche for the first day, pulled pork with butternut squash and bean enchiladas for the second day and a hot dog kit which is the third meal.All parcels come with a selection of salad, new potatoes and fruit.
