Meals on Wheels New South Wales

National Event

Celebrating our work

National Meals on Wheels Day is celebrated on the last Wednesday in August each year.  This annual celebration recognises the work of the organisations’ 78,700 volunteers at over 740 branches around the country.

This year we celebrate 60 years since the delivery of the first meal from Town Hall in Sydney.  Lord Mayor of Sydney Clover Moore said the City of Sydney's Meals on Wheels services provides around 1,000 meals each week to 200 clients across the local government area.

'For 60 years, our Meals on Wheels service has supported residents who are frail aged or living with a disability to continue living independently within their own homes and communities' the Lord Mayor said.

Here is this years press release.
