Meals on Wheels

Catering to your needs

Every month we deliver about 4,000 nutritious meals to residents who are unable to shop for, or prepare their own meals. Our Meals on Wheels service is available to:

  • frail older residents
  • people living with disability.

Dietary requirements

The service provides meals to suit a client's personal requirements such as special dietary needs, cultural and taste preferences.

The seasonal menu is rotated over a 4-week cycle to ensure you receive a varied and nutritious diet.

Cost and delivery

Individual meal packages start from $7.40 each. A standard meal package includes:

  • a main meal
  • dessert
  • slice of bread
  • butter portion
  • 110ml fruit juice.

The meals are delivered Monday to Friday by our staff and volunteers. Meals for weekends and public holidays are usually delivered on the previous work day.

Meal packages are delivered chilled or frozen (in bulk) so you can heat and serve your meal at a time that suits you. If you don't have a microwave or oven to reheat your meal, hot meal packages can be arranged instead.
