What is the cost of a meal?
**COVID-19 UPDATE - The extra funding announced for Meals on Wheels is to cover the production of additional meals the community will require from our Meals on Wheels Services over the course of the pandemic. These meals will still be charged at the regular price. Please contact your nearest Meals on Wheels Service for more details around their pricing.**
Meals on Wheels clients pay a fee for each meal delivered to their door. Every effort is made to keep meals as affordable as possible, particularly as many recipients are on a pension. Cost of meals and menu choices vary from service to service and depend upon conditions and factors prevailing to the particular area of the local service. Variations in the cost of meat, fruit and vegetables all affect the meal price therefore each local Meals on Wheels service sets the cost for its meals. It is through a combination of volunteers, Government assistance, clients and the wonderful community support which meets the cost of producing the meals.
