Meals on Wheels Central Coast have offered to assist older community members who have been affected by the temporary closure of the Lite n’ Easy facility in Sydney due to COVID.

The COVID 19 pandemic has seen an increase in demand for Meals on Wheels Central Coast, with more clients than ever before being served every week day. Over 160 Meals on Wheels Central Coast volunteers deliver over 15,000 meals per month to older Central Coast residents, and those on a NDIS plan.

 To further serve the community, Meals on Wheels Central Coast have offered to aid those aged 65 and over who may be left without meals due to the temporary closure of the Lite n’ Easy Sydney facility. “It is unfortunate that any organisation has been impacted due to COVID-19. All our clients can be reassured that we always follow covid safe procedures, with the aim of keeping our community safe”, said Dennis Taylor, CEO of Meals on Wheels Central Coast. “With our community currently being in lockdown, we are doing all we can to assist our clients in helping them stay home and stay safe.

 “Meals on Wheels Central Coast has the capacity to accommodate Lite N’ Easy clients that may not be able to source meals this week and beyond. As such, we are able to provide meals to those aged 65 and older, who have been impacted. A free main meal will be included with their order. “ To be eligible to  obtain meals, community members need to be 65 or older (over 50 if Indigenous).

Any other community members who are affected at this time, are encouraged to call MOWCC so they can offer their support. As well as meal delivery, Meals on Wheels Central Coast also offer an online grocery shopping program, where client’s groceries are ordered online, collected by a volunteer, and taken to their home. Further information on Meals on Wheels Central Coast’s free meal offer, meal deliveries, and online shopping program can be obtained by calling 4357 8444 or email admin@ccmow.com.au .

Meals on Wheels Central Coast is open from 8am to 4pm, Monday to Friday, and covers the entire Central Coast.
