Meals on Wheels in Pialba offering $6 meals to the public

MEALS on Wheels Fraser Community is dishing up delicious meals for the general public.

With many people busy and time poor, the organisation is now offering $6 meals anyone can go in and buy.

MOWFC treasurer Ian Brandon said they sold their frozen meat or fish dishes with three vegetables from Monday to Friday.

Up to 20 different varieties of main meals are usually available.

"These are the same meals we cook and serve to our Meals on Wheels clients," he said.

"We've always sold meals to the general public but no-one really knew about it."

Mr Brandon said while they didn't yet have eftpos facilities available, customers could pay by cash or cheque.

He said MOWFC was also grateful to the Freemasons of Mundubbera-Burnett Lodge, who recently donated a $6000 freezer to the charity.

"It's very, very generous," Mr Brandon said.

"We can store about 100 meals in the freezer."

Meals on Wheels Fraser Coast is open from 8am to 4pm on Monday to Friday at 39a Islander Rd in Pialba.

For more information, phone 4128 1334 or visit mowfc.org.au.

  • Lamb curry
