Meals on Wheels opens 'community restaurant'
Meals on Wheels Central Coast will open a "community restaurant" for eligible clients at its Woy Woy premises in May.
The restaurant will open from May 3 to combat social isolation on the Peninsula.
"Eating with others not only has health, nutritional, mental and social benefits, it's also good for the soul," said Meals on Wheels Central Coast chief executive Mr Dennis Taylor.
"This can be especially important for older members of our community, when social isolation can cause feelings of loneliness which in turn can lead to illness.
The Community Restaurant will run from 9:30am to 1:30pm and will offer a choice of meals including morning tea, hot lunch and dessert, and also bingo, games and entertainment.
"At a cost of $12, this is an ideal way to mingle with others, make new friends and combat social isolation.
"Transport can also be arranged for those needing this service," Mr Taylor said.
