Four Vegan Meal Delivery Services for Melbourne Vegans in Lockdown

Current daily life in Melbourne is not what we’re used to and the current lockdown restrictions mean that we’re spending most of our time inside at home. Motivation to complete household chores comes in waves and it’s sometimes hard to work out what to cook let alone finding the energy to cook! So, a vegan meal delivery service can help us through those tougher times.

There are four major vegan meal delivery service companies that are helping to ease the load for Melbourne vegans. There are many meals to choose from and Melbourne vegans can help support local businesses, too. Plus, each vegan meal delivery service practises zero-contact delivery.


Compassioneat is an affordable vegan meal delivery service that makes simple and nutritious single-serve meals. Compassioneat is the brainchild of a plant-based dietician student with a passion for healthy food without hefty price-tags. Basically, he’s creating compassionate meals to simplify our lives. All meals are made from organic ingredients, and all main meals are covered. You can choose from breakfast burritos, quinoa and tofu scramble, lunchtime soups like Tuscan bean and potato and leek, and dinner meals like dahl curries, Mexican carne beans, oyster mushroom risotto and tempeh steaks. All menu items range from $6.50 and $9.00 each and all meals arrive frozen in compostable packaging.

Garden of Vegan

Garden of Vegan is an Australia-wide vegan meal delivery service that also serves Melbourne. All meals are made from 100% certified organic ingredients from local suppliers, and are cooked using filtered water. For every order that’s placed with this vegan meal delivery service, Garden of Vegan plants a tree. Garden of Vegan is another vegan meal delivery service that collaborates with certified nutritionists and experts to create healthy and nutrient-dense meals. It’s recommended to eat meals fresh, though they can be popped into the freezer if you wish. There are a variety of meals from stews, soups, stir-frys, potato bakes, pastas, noodle salads, and even mac ‘n’ cheese. You can also choose a ‘mystery meal of the week’ for an added surprise. Prices range from $9.95 to $19.95.

PlantPrep is another leader in vegan nutrition with a genuine passion for creating delicious and nutritious plant-based food for everyone to enjoy. In addition, all meals are dietitian-approved before they are added to PlantPrep’s menu. All items are made from high-protein, wholefood ingredients using fresh, local produce. When you place an order with PlantPrep, they make and donate an additional two meals to those less fortunate. PlantPrep has a range of different sized meals from single serve to portions that serve two or four people. Think lentil Bolognese, burritos stir-frys, curries and tagines. All menu items range from $8.80 to $24.00 (depending on items and serving size).

Source of the Earth

Prepare to be nourished by Source of the Earth, the brainchild of two passionate vegan foodies (and chef) after tasting the delicious meals offered at a yoga retreat.  Menu items are all made from scratch and vary from week to week. Some of the featured meals have included gado gado, coconut curries, dahl curries, packs of falafels and salads, and bean stews; all packaged in compostable containers. Source of the Earth is a small-scale vegan meal delivery service that embodies a hyperlocal ethos that Melburnians love; small, sustainable and door-to-door. Prices for menu items vary each week. The owners are currently on a quick break, but will be back taking orders from September 14, 2020.
