Providing nutritious meals from a familiar face to help you stay independent longer
A friendly support service and social inclusion to people in the North Shoalhaven
Our mission is to help make it possible for people to stay home and maintain their independence. By delivering nutritious meals, social interaction and a friendly check on a client’s wellbeing, we help people live the lives they choose. Our deliveries are face-to-face – not just ‘drop and go’.
Good food is better with good company. Regular deliveries are great for a quick chat, but the Meals Together program goes a step further. It builds social connections for people who might otherwise be socially isolated.
Wellness & Nutrition
The National Meal Guidelines were developed by Meals on Wheels Australia in partnership with the Smart Foods Centre and University of Wollongong.
It's not only clients whose lives are enhanced by Meals on Wheels. People who give time to Meals on Wheels say volunteering has added a new dimension to their lives.
Are you a school, business, community service or simply time poor? Meals on Wheels North Shoalhaven can cater for you.

Irene – Meals Together Client
“I just had my meals delivered in the pouring rain. I complimented the driver, but he modestly brushed it off. I think all the drivers should be commended for what they do in gruelling conditions.”
