Meals on Wheels to host fundraising dinner
Words by Nadia Chapman

Meals on Wheels Moreton Bay Region is hosting an exciting fundraising event this week.

The event will be held on Thursday, June 6, at Caboolture and aims to raise funds for clients suffering with financial hardship.

Meals on Wheels Moreton Bay Region General Manager Wendy Smith says the fundraising event is quite simple but is hoping to have a big impact on the community.

“There will be a 3-course meal and an auction,” she says.

Meals on Wheels Moreton Bay Region first started in 2021 when four existing services - Pine Rivers and District, Burpengary, Caboolture, and Bribie Island, and one auxiliary service, the Samford distribution centre – merged into one.

There has been a lot of support within the community since the merge, including from well-known politician, Pauline Hanson, who has supported the group since the beginning, and who will be speaking at the fundraiser.

“Pauline Hanson offered her time to help raise these funds and wanted to show her support for Meals on Wheels and our local community,” Wendy says.

“We require more funding, and her help will make the community aware.”

The easiest way to get involved and support Meals on Wheels Moreton Bay Region is to buy a ticket here.
