North Shoalhaven Meals on Wheels delivers nutritious meals, social interaction and a friendly check of a client’s wellbeing, helping people live the lives they choose.
We provide a wide range of soups, main meals and desserts that target the changing nutritional needs of older people. Our deliveries are face-to-face – not just ‘drop and go’. Our volunteers care, and grow valuable connections with our clients, week after week, delivery after delivery.
How to order
Once we have your details and MAC or NDIS number your local Client Coordinator will contact you to finalise details such as menu choices and delivery days.
Meal delivery starts
Our local Meals on Wheels volunteers start delivering the meals. If your needs change over time, your local Client Coordinator is your point of contact.
Convenience & Cost
Meals are delivered weekly right to your door. There is no limit to the number of meals you can order, and you can change as often as you need. You may like a meal every day, or you may just like to keep a few in the freezer for those times when you need an easy dinner.
With support from the Commonwealth Government and our strong volunteer base, we are able to provide exceptional value for money.
- Main meals $6
- Soups $2
- Desserts $2
- Our meals are nutritious for everyone, especially those over 65 or recovering from illness or injury.
- We cater for special dietary needs including low salt, gluten free, vegetarian, and texture modified.
- Older adults may eat less than they used to, but their need for nutrients such as protein, calcium, dietary fibre and folate is higher. Our meals provide this extra nutrition, supporting stronger bones, muscle strength and overall wellbeing.
Most supermarket ready-made meals don’t meet protein or calcium targets and can be high in sodium and fat. View a comparison of nutrition information for our meals compared to supermarket equivalents. Better still, talk to your GP or an Accredited Dietician about nutrition needs appropriate to your age.
Variety & Quality
Just as important as nutrition, our meals taste great! Our menus are planned on a four week rotation, with 10 options each week. You could eat something different every day of the month, or stick with a few of your favourites.
All of the meals we deliver are prepared in commercial kitchens, with qualified Food Safety Supervisors on duty. Our kitchens are regularly inspected and meet the high standards required when cooking for vulnerable people. Wherever possible, we source our ingredients locally.
