Meals on Wheels Service
Our meals on wheels service commenced over 25 years ago, with delivery of about 12 meals a day to local people in the OLOL area. We currently deliver 60+ meals a day 5 days a week in the south city area. The service is available to anyone who might not be able to cook for themselves due to old age or ill health. Meals are cooked freshly each day at the Sit N Sip Community Café.
Meals are healthy, varied, and nutritious and are cooked to strict HACCP standards. Each person receives a daily hot meal and dessert; we deliver not just in OLOL but also in the surrounding areas.
The meals on wheels project is supported by our Community Employment Project who provide a familiar friendly face to those availing of the service. The benefits of the programme are much more than just a hot meal, its a quick chat and a check in each day, for those often isolated or homebound and it also provides peace of mind for anyone with elderly relatives who might be living a distance away from their families or working full-time.
