Meals on Wheels Australia


Dates to remember

Meals on Wheels holds several events throughout the year. Conferences, ceremonies and celebrations mark the collaborative achievements throughout the organisation and individual bodies.
Here are some National Activities to keep in your diary...

National Conferences...
Held every 2 years the AMOWA National Conference is an ideal way for MoW to get together from across Australia, to hear great speakers, exchange ideas, see the latest innovations and more.

2015 National Conference...
A taste of South Australia!

The 2015 National Conference will bring into focus the issues, challenges, opportunities and exciting future for MoW, in communities all over Australia.
Building on a traditional focus of engaging a diversity of people, the Conference will bring renewed energy, ideas and vision, to help the organisation continue to provide a vital service and meet the needs of the community, now and in the future.
What will clients need in the future, how will tastes change, what is the right meal experience, have we already felt the influence of “Boomer Power”? These and other questions will be tackled in an important National forum.
It is anticipated that over 350 volunteers and staff will attend the 2015 Conference from all over Australia. The program aims to be diverse and stimulating with a range of well-known, informative, engaging and entertaining speakers. Join us for a taste of South Australia.
