Wheels to Meals is back in action now COVID-19 restrictions have eased.
On Wednesday, 20th January Nowra Bomaderry Wheels to Meals division held it's second monthly luncheon at a Nowra venue since the restrictions were eased.
The first, in December, saw 12 pensioners enjoy a special gathering at the Tav Bistro at the North Nowra Tavern, with decorations, a super meal replete with Christmas pudding and much joy.
It had been a long time since their previous 'monthly' lunch in February, 2020!
This time, 15 clients, via Community Transport, gathered at Homemade Gourmet Pies in Plunkett Street, Nowra and had a fabulous time.
"The attention to COVID-19 regulations was meticulously met and the special meal prepared at a special price by the generosity of our host, Jason, was so very good," organiser Yadida Sekel said.
"Not only does Homemade Gourmet Pies supply a large variety of ample-sized tasty pies, their slices and tarts are to die for."
Although all clients have nutritional meals delivered to them regularly, most live alone and relish fraternising with others who live similarly, but would otherwise never meet.
Nowra Bomaderry Meals On Wheels is introducing a large variety of desserts to add to their new main dishes.
The much-improved menu has delighted all recipients while giving them the maximum of vitamins and balanced nutrients in tasty and varied meals.
Next month Wheels to Meals will go to the famous Leaf Japanese Restaurant in Nowra. Nearby restaurants have always been keen and hospitable.
Volunteers accompany the clients and assist where necessary.
Meals On Wheels operates totally with volunteers, and is on the lookout for more volunteers to work in the kitchen from time to time, and a few more meal delivery drivers to work on the days that suit themselves.
A driver for the refrigerated truck is also sought.
Those interested, young or old, should call 4422 5111.
