Meals on Wheels is an essential Community Service which offers a range of meal options including hot meal delivery to be consumed immediately as well as frozen meals that allows the client to choose when they want to eat. Frozen meals are also available for people to supplement for week-ends and for people living in the rural and remote areas around Mudgee.
Meals on Wheels cater for frail/aged people and younger people with disabilities and their carers. Prospective clients’ may refer themselves to the service or be referred by a friend, relative, doctor or any medical service.
Meals are delivered Monday to Friday and all Public Holidays. There is a choice of 2 main hot meals and 2 sweets per day with a rotating MENU of 4 weeks. The emphasis is on providing a service planned to suit the needs of the individual client.
One of the most appreciative aspects of the meal delivery to clients is the daily contact by the volunteer along with monitoring their wellbeing, health and safety. Meals on Wheels are “more than a meal."
