For over 65 years, Meals on Wheels has played a crucial role nationally in supporting the health and wellbeing of over 200,000 older Australians every year across our member network of over 590 service locations.
Our shared purpose is to support well-nourished, independent and connected communities through the delivery of a nutritious meal, social connection and a wellbeing check by our dedicated volunteer workforce.
Our essential service plays an important role in early intervention and health prevention, allowing older Australians to live in their homes for longer.
We do this through our incredible 45,000 volunteer workforce who form meaningful connections with Meals on Wheels customers, enable them to live independently and age well and provide valuable peace-of-mind to their loved ones.
Today signals the beginning of Australia’s largest annual celebration of volunteers, National Volunteer Week.
