Meals On Wheels Milestone

Meals On Wheels Milestone
Redcliffe Meals on Wheels has reached a huge milestone and  is very pleased to record the delivery of its three millionth meal.

This milestone was actually achieved on 20 March 2020 during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic and now with restrictions eased somewhat, RMoW is very pleased to mark this special event. The recipient of the three millionth meal was Mrs Olga Carr, a RMoW client since 2011. She was presented with her meal together with a bouquet of flowers by RMoW General Manager of over 20 years, Mrs Joy Dawe.

"We are fortunate to have a great team of staff who are highly skilled and extremely devoted to helping less fortunate souls in the community," Joy said. "They have worked tirelessly over the past 3 months in an environment which at the very least can be described as challenging.  We also have a dedicated team of volunteers who love helping us to achieve our goals of making sure that over 200 elderly people on the Peninsula get a hot meal every day. We are also fortunate to have the generous support of all 3 levels of Government."

Meals on Wheels commenced deliveries in Redcliffe 53 years ago and has operated from its premises in Gomersall Street Redcliffe since 28 November 1970, when the building was officially opened by Hon. Dame Annabelle Rankin DBE.
