Balbriggan Meals on Wheels 40th Anniversary Celebrations

June 7, 2015 0

40 years ago this June, the foundation stone and building work began at Parish Centre, Hampton Street for the new Meals on wheels kitchen facility. The first meals were actually delivered in January 1976. and they consisted of 18 meals covering Balbriggan, Man O’ War and Balscadden.

Balbriggan Meals on Wheels now serve 80 meals daily, together with a dinner club on Monday, Wednesdays & Fridays. They also cook the meals for the Balbriggan Alzheimer Day Care Centre.

To celebrate the 40th anniversary, invitations were sent to all volunteers, past and present and to various benefactors, mostly within the town of Balbriggan in recognition of all their hard work and support over the years. A wonderful evening had by all…

Balbriggan Meals on Wheels now have a ‘state of the art’ kitchen, and work very strictly within the Health & Safety Guidelines and HSE standards to bring home cooking to those who need it most.

If you think there is someone near you who would benefit from our service please give Helen a call @ 8416743 any morning Monday-Saturday 9am – 1 p.m.
