Meals on Wheels have upped production, with many sick and elderly people unable to leave their homes during the coronavirus pandemic.

The team at the Harvey Senior Citizens has been taking extra precautions to ensure all safety requirements are being met and community members are being fed.

Harvey Senior Citizens president Brian Kealley said delivering meals was an essential service.

“We’re trying to keep meals on wheels going,” Mr Kealley said.

The menu includes spaghetti, roast lamb, butter chicken, sweet and sour pork and beef chow mein, among many other tasty meals.

“Our motto is more than just a meal,” Mr Kealley said.

“Some vulnerable people really rely on us because they don’t have anyone.”

Mr Kealley said all other activities at the Harvey Senior Citizens had come to a halt because of the Federal Government’s social gathering restrictions. Bingo, boot scooting and activity days had all been stopped. Mr Kealley said volunteers were welcome.
