Our service

An individualised, flexible and nutritious food service that helps you keep your independence.

Our service

Ku-ring-gai and Hornsby Meals on Wheels has been delivering meals to the local community since 1961, accompanied by a chat and smile from our friendly local volunteers.

We take pride in our high standard of meals, which are produced locally in our Turramurra kitchen using locally sourced and fresh ingredients. We offer a wide variety of meals, from hot main meals to frozen meals, from salads to soups to supper packs and desserts.

Meals on Wheels is more than just a meal. Our friendly volunteers support people by providing regular social interaction and the comfort of knowing someone will drop by to say hello. We also provide the opportunity to share a meal and conversation at our Monday Lunch Club. Door to door transport can be provided for a small fee.

Healthy & delicious meals

Ku-ring-gai Meals on Wheels delivers a large range of delicious and nutritious meals that are nutritionally balanced to meet the Nutritional Guidelines for Older Australians.

Friendly volunteers

Meals are delivered by a volunteer on a suitable day between 11.00am and 1.00pm Monday to Friday.

Meet new people

Ku-ring-gai Meals on Wheels also provides the opportunity to attend our Lunch Club on Mondays in the Turramurra dining room.

Who is the service for?

Our service is designed to support people who find it difficult to shop and prepare meals for themselves. Meals on Wheels is available at a subsidised rate through the Australian Government’s Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP), or a contribution to services is available through the Home Care Package Program (HCP) and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

Eligibility is determined by My Aged Care or the NDIS who will provide an assessment and referral for meal services. Find out more information here.

Meals on Wheels is also available to private clients at a special rate. Call us directly to make an enquiry.

Here are some examples of situations when you may need us:
