Meals on Wheels Project

The project will involve our VCAL students assisting in delivering meals on a Monday and Friday.

To enable this project to be sustainable we are seeking volunteers which may involve yourself, a grandparent and/or other relative of your child who could volunteer some time.

Involvement would consist of:

  • Picking up your child and another student from school at 11.10am
  • Driving them to the hospital to receive the meals
  • Delivering meals around the community.

Depending on the amount of meals that need to be delivered, this may take until 1.00pm.

We believe this is a great opportunity for our students to interact with older members of the community and obtain a sense of how important it is to give back to the town they live in.

If you are able to assist with this program The Department of Education will have some requirements that need to be meet.  All volunteers will need to ensure you have comprehensive car insurance and check that it will cover passengers when travelling. Volunteers will also be required to have a working with children’s check which is easy to obtain. Paper work can be picked up from local post office or completed online at https://online.justice.vic.gov.au/wwccu/onlineapplication.doj  .  Volunteers do not have to pay for this check.

If you are interested in being part of this program, please feel free to get in contact with Rachael Guppy, rachael.guppy@yarrawonga.vic.edu.au or 57441751. All assistance would be greatly appreciated! If you have any further questions, please get in touch.

Yours Sincerely
