A partnership between LiveBetter's Cafe Connect and Orange City Council's Choices at Home program will deliver fresh, hot cooked meals to ageing community members.
The meal deliveries will take place twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays providing a nutritious, cost effective and delicious options delivered direct to the door for only $6.50.
LiveBetter's chief executive officer Natalie Forsyth-Stock said she is excited to work alongside Orange City Council to help the community.
"We are excited to step up and help out as the Meals on Wheels service has struggled with a lack of volunteers during the coronavirus pandemic," she said.
"We started last week and so far we have 10 people who have signed up to the service and we are expecting more in the next couple of weeks.
"We wanted to highlight our support for the Orange community, the Cafe Connect staff and to give back during the virus crisis."
Ms Forsyth-Stock also said food safety standards and controlled measures are maintained and the food will be delivered over the lunch period.
"The meals will be hot and ready to eat immediately or to be placed in the refrigerator for later," she said.
Orange mayor Reg Kidd said during this time of extra COVID isolation, the freshly cooked meals can provide a boost for the elderly.
"Around 350 residents receive frozen meals delivered by council staff under the 'Choices at Home Meals-on-Wheels' banner," he said.
"Services like this help elderly residents to stay health and to live independently."
