Meals on Wheels

The local Meals on Wheels service is provided by Blue Mountains Food Services who provide a range of services to engage with our community.

Whether it’s nutritious meals delivered to your home, a friendly chat at one of our many community restaurants, or assistance with daily activities from one of our lovely volunteers, we’re all about helping you to remain independent and socially connected in your community.

​The Meals on Wheels service is much more than just a meal. It is about entering a friendly and caring community filled with dedicated staff and volunteers, and clients who share a like-minded interest in maintaining an independent and healthy lifestyle.

The Meals on Wheels service is available to eligible people over the age of 65, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people over the age of 50, or people on an NDIS plan. We also provide meals to private clients.

In order to find out if you are eligible, contact Blue Mountains Food Services on 4759 2811.

Eligible people are able to use the service using one or both modes of service delivery.
