While age and disability may reduce some people’s capacity to get out and about, Meals on Wheels volunteers help make it possible for them to stay home and maintain their independence. By delivering nutritious meals, social interaction and a friendly check of a client’s wellbeing, volunteers help people live the lives they choose.
Mudgee Meals on Wheels is auspiced by Council. Flexible options are available to suit participants' budgets and delivery schedules are negotiated directly.
