A new $55,000 freezer extension at the Tweed Meals on Wheels kitchen in Kingscliff has increased capacity for the service to deliver food to the needy.

Richmond MP Justine Elliot on Thursday attended the opening of the extensions at the  kitchen based at Tweed Community Support, Kingscliff.

Tweed Community Support is a community based organisation providing Meals on Wheels services to frail aged clients and their carers in the Tweed Coast and Tweed Heads area.

Mrs Elliot said Meals on Wheels was a growing service and increasing the freezer capacity was vitally important.

‘I’d like to thank the 80 volunteers at the Tweed Meals on Wheels who give up their time to provide 700 meals per week to 200 people across our region,’ she said.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
