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.
