Pomona & District Meals on Wheels
A big hello to one and all from the Meals on Wheels kitchen at the back of the Memorial Hall in our wonderful town of Pomona. Our kitchen is a lively place on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings when meals are prepared and delivered to recipients from Traveston and Kin Kin on the north side, down to Eumundi at the southern end of our territory. Some folks get three meals a week (hot mains and soup along with dessert and 100% juice -- all for $7.00 -- what a bargain!), while others choose to get meals each day or once or twice a week.
We are looking for a supervisor/cook to come on board, learn our procedures and take on a regular cooking role in our roster; ideally this would suit a more mature person, someone who wants to do part-time work and earn a little extra income. We prepare 35-40 meals per day, which ensures a quality product -- just like home cooking with that personal touch. An added bonus is the opportunity to work with friendly, motivated volunteers in a harmonious atmosphere. Give us a call or come into our kitchen on one of our cooking mornings (see above) and check out our operation with professional equipment and plenty of help putting the meals together.
We are also looking for volunteers to join our committee to help with the running of our modest business, ensuring we'll be a viable enterprise well into the future and keeping meals delivered to (mostly aged) people so that they can remain in the comfort of their own homes. As well, we are always on the lookout for more volunteers to help cook desserts, keep the kitchen tidy and do deliveries to our customers.
Volunteers are like gold in an organization such as ours (indeed, to all not-for-profit businesses for that matter) and get treated accordingly. We endeavour to have fun in our kitchen; from remarks made and smiles on faces I think I can safely say that we are successful in doing that. It's so much better to work in a caring and enlightened environment -- people help one another and share a joke or two. On top of that morning tea is supplied and you get that warm and fuzzy feeling thrown in for good measure.
For anyone wanting to get involved in our organization or wanting meal deliveries please pop into our kitchen at the back of the Memorial Hall or give us a call on 5485 1777(W), 5485 0527(H) or 5485 2209(H). Thank you.
Annual General Meeting. Our AGM will be held in the Pomona Memorial Hall on Wednesday, September 15th 2010 at 12:30PM. All those interested are welcome to attend; we are looking for a secretary now and a treasurer in the very near future. Our organization needs a committee to continue to operate and provide meals to (mostly) elderly people so that they can remain in the comfort of their own homes, so please give this serious consideration. Light refreshments will be served following the meeting.
