Meals on Wheels™ has been an iconic and trusted service in Australian communities for more than 70 years, but it wasn’t until 1989 that the national association we now know as Meals on Wheels® Australia was born. 

Today,  Meals on Wheels™ Australia is a vital national association, working alongside its member organisations –  as well as peak bodies, providers, and services – across every state and territory. 

Committed to supporting the wellbeing and interests of older Australians, Meals on Wheels™ Australia works with these groups and the community to raise awareness and lobby for action around the importance of good nutrition and social connection.
