Meals on Wheels Victoria has proudly developed and collected a number of useful resources that share the valuable impact our service has in supporting the independence and connection of vulnerable members of the community, as well as the importance of good nutrition to our wellbeing.
From our Federal Government-endorsed National Meal Guidelines and research about the Meals on Wheels service, to information brochures, we hope you find our collection informative and insightful.

Organisations; to guide benchmarking and writing tender specifications
Local Government, Health Networks, other Non-for-profit entities, meal producers
