Meals on Wheels Boroondara

Delivering nutritious meals to older people in Boroondara including Canterbury, Surrey Hills, Camberwell, Deepdene, Balwyn and Balwyn North. Now Delivering to Hawthorn, Hawthorn East, Kew and Kew East.

Our Meals on Wheels program is a service we’re proud to deliver throughout the Boroondara community. More than just providing a nutritious, three-course meal to people’s homes, it’s also about fostering a sense of community and promoting independence. For the long-time volunteers who deliver the meals, it’s a role they cherish and, often, a drop-in on an old friend.

  • Our Meals on Wheels program also serves as a check-in on the welfare of our clients. Our volunteers make certain everything is in order – from putting out cutlery and disposing of uneaten food, to bringing in the bins and collecting mail. Any problems a client may be experiencing are quickly brought to the attention of BASScare staff, and family members or carers are notified.
  • At BASScare, it’s all about the client. Even down to the menu. We know what the favourite meals are, so we make sure they’re on rotation. There is even the opportunity for our clients to have tastings with the chef and have real input into the make up of the menu.
  • All the meals are prepared by our experienced staff in our state-of-the-art Canterbury kitchen. We also cater for special dietary requirements, so don’t hesitate to get in touch with our friendly staff.

Reasonably Priced

Our delicious three course meals are very reasonably priced and are subsidised by Boroondara Council and the Department of Health.

A daily check-in with a smile

With respect and consideration, our volunteers deliver so much more than a nutritious meal service. Problems like isolation and loneliness among older people and those with disabilities are a growing concern. Any problems a client may be experiencing are quickly brought to the attention of the BASScare staff, and family or carers are promptly notified.

Every client and their family can have peace of mind knowing that BASScare volunteers have come calling to check on their wellbeing.
