Celebrating our work
National Meals on Wheels Day is celebrated on the last Wednesday in August each year. This annual celebration recognises the work of the organisations' 78,700 volunteers at over 740 branches around the country.
Australian Meals on Wheels President, Leon Holmes, said "the day is about recognising the efforts of the organisations' volunteers and staff."
"The strength of Meals on Wheels comes from our volunteers and the incredible work they do." he said.
"I can't praise highly enough our volunteers, many of whom have been with their local Services for years, even decades. They come with a desire to contribute to the community, but they also make friendships and enjoy a rare sort of camaraderie".
