Meals on Wheels serves up a new look and menu

With the support of Ku-ring-gai, Northern Beaches and Hornsby Councils, Meals on Wheels has been providing a meal service for vulnerable residents in northern Sydney for the last 62 years.

From its kitchen in Turramurra The Village Chef cooks fresh and frozen meals for hundreds of residents every week, which are then delivered door to door by dedicated volunteers.

With an eye to the future and to include all the areas it now services such as the Northern Beaches, a decision was made to rebrand as The Village Chef.

The Village Chef has an expanded menu, with clients being offered meal choices from 1 May ranging from Asian, Italian, Indian and vegetarian along with the staples of freshly made sandwiches, salads, soups and desserts.

Mayor Jeff Pettett said the name change reflected people’s changing tastes and the evolution of the Meals on Wheels service.

“The service means different things to different people, but at its heart is that care for the community and strengthening a sense of connection,” he said.
