Who can use Meals on Wheels?

Meals on Wheels supports an independent and social lifestyle for seniors. We provide tasty and nutritious home-delivered meals for residents aged over 65 or those aged over 50 years and who identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander.

Anyone can contact our service and you don’t need to be referred. You might need us when:

  • You or someone you care for has left hospital or does not feel well
  • You can’t get to the shops
  • You’re a carer or relative who needs a rest and you want to make sure the person you look after is eating healthy meals
  • Any other time you feel you can’t cook a meal for yourself, your partner or someone you care for

We deliver to the following suburbs: Manly, Manly Vale, Queenscliff, North Manly, Freshwater, Fairlight, Balgowlah, Balgowlah Heights, North Balgowlah, Clontarf, Seaforth, Curl Curl, North Curl Curl

If you live in any other suburb of the Northern Beaches, the Benevolent Society will provide Meals on Wheels to your area. 

To refer someone, complete the client referral form and email it to mow@northernbeaches.nsw.gov.au
