Vehicle Deliveries 

Georgedale Meals on Wheels are delivering more than 10 000 meals per month. Just recently they had an unfortunate accident with their very old van. Meals on Wheels, through its many very kind donors, was able to hand over a brand new Peugeot Partner to them.

 

There was tears of joy as a brand new 13 seater bus was delivered  to East Rand Meals on Wheels. This branch has been in operation since 1982 and serves more than 9000 meals a month. Their old Toyota Stallion reached retirement and the "Golden Oldies" were excited that they no longer have to sit on benches in the back of their previous vehicle.

winter drive 

Meals on Wheels Northern Cape hosted their annual car show on 22 May 2016. It was held at the DFA Park in Kimberley. The aim of the car show was to enhance the Winter Drive by asking members of the public to donate blankets & clothing which could be distributed to the poorest of the poor.


Cooks Training 

Meals on Wheels has completed the final cooks training in Johannesburg. This is the first formal training we have given our cooks, for many of them this is the first formal training they have ever had. We are excited to be able to empower our cooks that work around the clock preparing meals for the hungry. The training program was a huge success with everyone gaining knowledge, friendship and faith.
