Local MP’s get a taste of volunteering

When it comes to volunteering, Meals on Wheels Central Coast has one of the largest contingents in the region.

These volunteers and the amazing work that they do were celebrated on Wednesday 28 August on National Meals on Wheels Day.

To get a taste of what volunteering is like for the iconic organisation, Liesl Tesch MP, Member for Gosford, and David Harris MP, Member for Wyong, participated in some meal delivery runs out of the Woy Woy outlet and Tuggerah Distribution centre.

David Harris MP, assisted long standing volunteer Mike on his delivery out of Tuggerah, enjoying the opportunity to visit Meals on Wheels Central Coast clients.

“Our community is being well served by the staff and volunteers of Meals on Wheels Central Coast. It’s not just a service that delivers food but also offers opportunities to connect with clients on a social level making sure they’re safe and okay.

“On behalf of the community we particularly thank the volunteers for their hours and dedicated service.” Mr Harris said.

On the Peninsula at Woy Woy, Liesl Tesch MP was kept busy assisting volunteer Alan, who is celebrating his first year with Meals on Wheels Central Coast.

“Being a part of such a great cause and working with volunteers that put their all into delivering meals every day was an honour.

“It’s so rewarding to support Meals on Wheels and deliver food to those who need it most in our community.” Ms Tesch said.
