The program

Many people in our community find it difficult to cook for themselves often due to mobility which can result in social isolation. Meals on Wheels provides a range of healthy and nutritious meals frozen and fresh meals delivered to their door.

As a Red Cross volunteer, you will be helping these people access to not only nutritious meals, but also a quick chat to brighten their day.

The opportunity

We are looking for enthusiastic and reliable volunteers to be part of a team of Meals on Wheels volunteers. This is a great opportunity for anyone who would enjoy making our clients' lives a little bit easier.

The Meals on Wheels Meals Packer Volunteer will require a commitment of at least one day per week, fortnightly or monthly to help with the packing of the meals which will be sent to our clients house.

You will require a Working with Vulnerable Peoples Card and a police check.

The impact

As a Meals on Wheels Volunteer, you’ll help improve the quality of life and wellbeing of people who are elderly or have a disability by connecting them with services in their local community. Your support and assistance can make all the difference in the lives of these people who need it the most, and we are sure you will enjoy it too!
