COMMUNITY NOTICES

MEALS ON WHEELS ROSTER    

Meals on Wheels Coolum Beach has had a place in the hearts and homes of the Coolum Community for more than 40 Years.

We prepare fresh nutritious meals and deliver them to people’s homes to enable them to live independently. We also provide social contact, a friendly smile and a chat to check all is well and make a difference to someone’s day.

Our volunteers are the core of our service – preparing and delivering meals as well as helping in the office. We couldn’t do what we do without their help.

We are always on the lookout for new volunteers to join our team. Can you spare a few hours a month to help keep the wheels running smoothly? Why not give us a call to find out more? It could make your day!

Please call 5446 1000 to find out how to be part of our community.
