About Us

The service was inaugurated in 1964 by the Reverend Ken and Mrs. Sheila Stevens, with the support of the congregation of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church.

It began by serving five clients for three days a week at a charge of two shillings (20¢) for each meal.  The meals were cooked and delivered by members of the congregation.

The service has grown since these early days and we now prepare and deliver over 5,000 meals each month.

The mission of St. Andrews Meals on Wheels is to deliver nutritional and affordable meals to the elderly and disabled of Townsville, enabling them to remain in their own homes in the community.  We are a Not-for-Profit Charity.
