Price rise for Meals on Wheels in Grenfell

Cowra/Grenfell Meals on Wheels has always prided itself on being able to provide its clients with healthy and affordable meals.

We have 4 different meal options i.e. hot meals from the MPS, hot meals from Railway Hotel, A huge selection of frozen meals and community luncheons.

Nine months ago Western Local Health District advised Meals on Wheels that they would be increasing the price of meals supplied to Meal services across the area from that time on.

The increased cost for Grenfell was $9.50 per meal package.

Over that period of time since the price increase notification from WLHD, Cowra/Grenfell Meals on Wheels has absorbed this price increase. Unfortunately, however, the service is no longer able to afford to continue to do this.

We do understand that these price increases for the hot meals supplied by the MPS may be unaffordable to some members in the Grenfell community, therefore we are currently in the process of working with clients to ensure that they have access to the best meal options.

Should you have any concerns, either for yourself, friend or relative, please don’t hesitate to contact Kath on 6343 2233 at Grenfell – or Denise on 6342 4165 at Cowra Meals on Wheels for further information.
