Meals on Wheels team fires up the ovens for record attempt

THOSE who use the Dalby Meals on Wheels service had better have a yearning for roast chicken and vegetables, as the organisation made more than 40 serves of the meal on Wednesday.

The record attempt, in conjunction with Meals on Wheels branches across Queensland, marked the national Meals on Wheels Day.

"We're very confident in our team to produce the quality and quantity required,” president Jim Buckley said.

Fifteen individuals participated in the record attempt, including trainee chef Rose Jimenez who has been with Meals on Wheels since December.

Ms Jimenez has loved her time with Meals on Wheels and thoroughly enjoyed the morning of making the meals.

Although Meals on Wheels Dalby has a great team of volunteers, Mr Buckley said they were always on the hunt for more.

Mr Buckley said you only needed to donate as little as one hour a month to the service, and he was particularly keen to see more young people jump on board.

If you're interested in volunteering, call 4662 5230.
