Recognising volunteers who live to serve

This year, National Meals on Wheels Day will take place on Wednesday 25th August 2022. On this day, we take the time to recognise the outstanding and selfless service to others that thousands of volunteers commit themselves to ensuring that older Australians remain nourished and safe at home every day.

Minister for Seniors, Mark Coure, will be hosting a Meals on Wheels Showcase where a number of local branches will be in attendance in NSW Parliament next week to show off their work.

Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies said that it is essential that we can come together to recognise the tireless efforts that are made by organisations not just in our own communities but right around the country. The service that is provided by Meals on Wheels gives our seniors the dignity and support they deserve to and help them to maintain an independent and healthy lifestyle.

“In my electorate of Mulgoa, Dittie Kozak, Manager of Nepean Food Service and her volunteers carry out this important community work, delivering nutritious meals to our seniors, promoting healthy living and supporting our seniors to eat well.” Mrs Davies said.

“It is inspiring to see how many volunteers get involved in the service of others, especially in service of our Seniors. In NSW alone there are over 14,000 volunteers and I would like to thank each and every one of them for their service.”

“I want to thank everyone at Nepean Food Service for all the incredible work they do, tirelessly supporting our local community and our seniors.”

Events to recognise the volunteer force behind Meals on Wheels will take place around the State. To find out what is happening in your area, contact your local Meals on Wheels service.
