What's On the Menu at Meals on Wheels Pomona?Nutritious, balanced, hearty meals prepared in Pomona from fresh and locally grown ingredients. For anyone who needs assistance with meals - short or long term!
Our meals are prepared and delivered fresh around midday (11am-1pm) on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. On these days we usually deliver one hot meal and one chilled meal that you place in the fridge for the following day. We also prepare frozen dinners for Sundays and Public Holidays, or if you have requested to receive fewer weekly deliveries of frozen meals to reheat at your convenience. Since COVID our clients can also order a weekly supply of frozen meals, available for pick up or delivery on Mondays.
Our meals are wholesome and nutritionally balanced and we can cater to most dietary requirements. Our wonderfully diverse menu changes every six weeks to keep it interesting. Our food is enjoyed by people from all walks of life – frail elderly, recovering patients, busy commuters, carers, people with disabilities, people struggling to cope.
All meals are made on site using local produce (some of which is volunteered by local producers). All food is prepared in a commercial kitchen in compliance with legislative Health, Hygiene and Safety Standards.
Meals can be purchased for any amount of time – short or long term. Because we receive government subsidies we are able to provide you with high quality meals at minimal cost – please contact us directly for the current meal rates and to let us know of any special dietary requirements that you have.
Prepping the daily meals. That’s a lot of veges!
Fresh local produce is donated regularly by our wonderfully generous community.

What the people who matter most say…
I have recently started receiving meals from the Pomona Meals on Wheels team. As I live in an area that is not within the Pomona MOW drop zone, arrangements have been made to deliver meals to a family member who works at Cooroy, who in turn delivers them to my home. Thank you Meals on Wheels!
Whilst I am limited in what I can eat, the MOW team has catered to my dietary requirements. If there is something new on the menu and there is any doubt as to whether it would meet my requirements, either I or my carer is contacted to resolve any potential issues. MOW has been looking after me for the past fifteen years, delivering seven delicious meals (hot and frozen) per week. Much appreciated, thank you.
I have been receiving Meals on Wheels for more than 20 years and enjoy the diversity in the menu. The meals are delicious and drivers are courteous, always finding the time to stop for a chat. I appreciate MOW looking after me for all these years.
During the time I have been receiving meals from Pomona Meals on Wheels, the kitchen staff have been able to cater for my special dietary requirements as well as providing tasty meals. My sister enjoys the meals when she comes to stay. Thank you for looking after me.
