Many people want to remain at home, even after it has become clear that they couldn’t possibly do so without help.

That is why services like Meals on Wheels are so important.

Not only do they deliver meals, ensuring people’s nutritional needs are met, but they provide a source of social interaction that may otherwise not be possible.

Volunteers allocate time out of their day to deliver meals around the local area to the frail aged and people living with additional needs. Message from Meals on Wheels Australia and the local team to volunteers:

Dear Valued Meals on Wheels Volunteer. "Never has this been more evident to celebrate and thank our volunteers than after a year where Australia has dealt with drought, devastating bushfires, floods and then a global pandemic.

Amidst the pandemic, while many of us stayed home, volunteers continued to deliver essential services, organise food packages and offer care, comfort and more to support the well-being of Australians.

Volunteers make our communities stronger, especially during times of need, crisis or isolation" - Volunteering Australia Without Volunteers Griffith Meals on Wheels would simply not operate, we owe everything to the commitment and support of our very dedicated team of volunteers and this week during National Volunteers Week we would like to say "Thank you" for all that you do.

Your time is very much valued and appreciated not only by the staff but by the clients. Your dedication to community service is to be applauded.

Kind regards, Tennille, Kim & Kristie and the Griffith Meals on Wheels Management Committee.
