Giving back to your community

We have a pool of valuable volunteers who help serve our community, but we are always looking for more. The council relies on volunteers to deliver many services to the community.

General information

Meals are delivered five days a week and take roughly 25-30 minutes to deliver, depending on how many meals are required that day. Meals are delivered at 11.30am each day and collected from Grampians Health in Stawell and East Wimmera Health Services in St Arnaud. 

You are welcome to volunteer as much or as little as you want. Some choose to volunteer one or two days per week, others twice a month or even on select days throughout the year. It is important that the schedule suits you, we appreciate any help.

If you are interested in being a Meals on Wheels volunteer, please phone our Community Care Team on 03 5358 0514 who will provide you with an information pack as assist with registration.

Volunteers are the backbone of the Meals on Wheels program and without you we cannot provide this fantastic service to our clients in need.
