WELCOME TO MEALS ON WHEELS POMONA

FRESH LOCAL MEALS DELIVERED WITH A FRIENDLY SMILE

Meals on Wheels Pomona can offer you freshly cooked local produce meals on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, if you are unable to prepare your own food. These home style meals are also available as frozen serves for the days in between. Our dedicated team of volunteers will not only deliver your meals with a smile but can stay for a chat and keep in touch to ensure that you can remain independent in your home, but still connected to people who care.

ABOUT MEALS ON WHEELS POMONA

What can we say… we love what we do! We create your nutritious, fresh meals in the uplifting atmosphere of the Pomona Memorial School of Arts commercial kitchen. We are committed to your wellbeing and know that food grown and prepared locally, and delivered with a smile, tastes so much better than any sterile, mass-produced pre-packed meals ever could! We really enjoy the community spirit that comes from getting to know you better and from knowing that we are helping to brighten up your day a little! Read more about how we got started and what makes us different here.

AM I ELIGIBLE?

Meals On Wheels Pomona is not means tested and is available for anyone (and their carers) who requires assistance with meals. Many people don’t realise this but if you are simply too busy to cook you can order and pick up our fresh or kitchen-prepared frozen meals instead of unhealthy takeaway food. Many carers, busy commuters, overwhelmed parents, short term recovery patients and others use our services. Even if you are signed up with other service providers, you can still choose to order your meals through us!

We service the following Noosa Hinterland suburbs: Black Mountain, Boreen Point, Cooran, Cooroy, Eumundi, Federal, Kin Kin, Pinbarren, Pomona, Traveston.If your suburb is nearby and you would like our service please contact us to check. Even if you live outside of our drop zone (e.g. Kenilworth), but have a carer or family member who can pick up meals from Pomona, you can access our service. 

Clients can refer themselves or be referred by a family member, friend, care provider, primary carer (e.g. doctor, community nurse) or hospital. Our clients include: elderly, people with disabilities and their carers,  post-op and recuperating patients, people experiencing hardship or who are struggling to cope with life’s demands. If you are still unsure if you can access Meals on Wheels, we can check for you.

WHAT’S ON THE MENU AT MEALS ON WHEELS POMONA?

At Meals on Wheels Pomona we prepare and deliver fresh midday meals on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and provide chilled (ready to heat) meals and frozen meals (also cooked on site), for the days in between. We source fresh local produce as much as possible and receive wonderful donations from nearby food producers and orchards too. You won’t suffer from any mass-produced, factory made meals from us! Our food is nutritionally balanced, wholesome, seasonal, fresh and prepared with a smile – like real home cooking! A standard meal consists of a hearty soup, nourishing main meal and dessert, however, we can create flexible menus to suit your unique dietary requirements too.

HOW DO I GET STARTED?

Our friendly volunteers are only a phone call or email away if you have any questions or want to discuss your situation in more detail. You can download and fill out an application form here or contact us to help you get started.

OUR DEDICATED VOLUNTEERS

Meals on Wheels Pomona comprises a small number of paid staff and a large family of dedicated volunteers who help with preparing and delivering food or with office duties. The great big secret that all volunteers discover is that a happy, open heart comes from giving, not getting!  Volunteering is an amazing way to meet new people in the community, to laugh, to give your life purpose, to experience the joy that comes from serving others and to make a positive difference to their lives. And… you learn new skills along the way!
