At Meals on Wheels SA we have over 7,000 dedicated volunteers who deliver meals to our 4,000 clients every week. For many, this nutritious meal and wellbeing check is essential in allowing them to continue living independently in their homes.

We’re passionate about well-nourished and connected communities, which is why we’ve extended our meals to other vulnerable South Australians.

Through our Help Feed People In Need Appeal, we have partnered with some amazing local organisations, including Catherine House and SHINE SA who work tirelessly to support and protect South Australia’s most vulnerable.

By donating to our Help Feed People In Need Appeal, you can put a nutritious meal in the hands of someone who needs it the most.

This includes South Australians…

  • experiencing homelessness
  • facing disadvantage and social isolation
  • dealing with financial hardship
  • attending a SHINE SA clinic. 

Thank you for supporting our Help Feed People In Need Appeal.

Pay it forward, today!

Imagine not knowing when your next meal will be, or if you’ll even be able to afford it.

For South Australia’s most vulnerable, this is a reality.

Since 1954, Meals on Wheels SA has delivered over 50 million meals to people who are not able to shop or cook for themselves.

Although we are funded via Commonwealth and State Government grants and receive customer contributions, there are people within our communities who simply cannot afford to pay their portion for a meal.

In response to this, we introduced our Fee Assistance Appeal, which supports people who need some extra help to keep nourished, safe and well.

By paying it forward, those who need it most will receive a freshly cooked meal, delivered by our friendly volunteers, without having to reach into their pockets.
