About Just Meals

Just Meals are environmentally-friendly ready meals made by Food Works in Sheffield.

Created using quality surplus and locally grown ingredients, Just Meals are frozen on site to retain flavour and quality. They also prevent further food waste by keeping fresh in your freezer until you’re ready to eat your meal.

Just Meals are a great alternative to a conventional ready meal. Each meal is packed in 100% biodegradable and home compostable packaging and can be heated in the microwave or oven at home.

Just Meals give back more to the planet than they take, closing the food sustainability loop in a convenient, tasty way.

Just Meals FAQs

Just Meals are available on a ‘pay what you can afford’ basis with a minimum contribution of £1.00 per meal. To keep the minimum affordable for those that need it, we ask that people who can afford to do pay more.

Some of our partners charge a fixed price per meal.

We don’t deliver to individual households but you can order regular deliveries to a Food Works hub or Partner hub as a subscriber. It’s easy to set up and you can cancel at any time.

Just Meals are available in four categories:

  1. Regular (contains meat normally)
  2. Vegetarian
  3. Gluten free
  4. Vegan and low allergen

We cook with ever changing ingredients so the dishes created change from day-to-day. 

Please note our meals are all cooked in kitchens where allergens are present, so we cannot guarantee no trace contamination. The vegan and low allergen meals do not contain ingredients with any of the 14 allergens but could have trace elements in them.

The Food Works hubs accept both cash and card. If you are ordering online, you must pay by card.

You can via our Gift Cards (coming soon)! Food Works gift cards offer an easy way to buy meals for someone else.
