About Us

At Meals on Wheels we assist many people in the community to live independently in their own homes by providing a high quality meal delivery service. Our customers include those who cannot cook or shop for themselves with ease, such as older people, people with a disability, carers or those recovering from an illness or injury. Meals are delivered hot from Monday to Friday, or frozen meals are available, allowing customers more dining flexibility, especially for weekends or public holidays.

Great food. Great people.
