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 each year, across 592 service locations.
Meals on Wheels services represent a significant and essential piece of social infrastructure, providing front-line, early intervention and prevention in the home and reducing the malnutrition risk faced by 1.2 million older Australians and the social isolation risk to one in four who live alone.
Our purpose is to support well-nourished and independent communities through the delivery of a nutritious meal, social connection and a wellbeing check by our dedicated volunteer workforce.
Through the ongoing uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, to devastating bushfires and other crises, Meals on Wheels is an essential service that continues to step up and support vulnerable members of a community at a time where it is needed most.
Meals on Wheels Australia is made up of a community of more than 590 grassroots services across the country, dedicated to the wellbeing, connection and independence of our most vulnerable.
