MANY of the guests at yesterday's Meals on Wheels Christmas in July luncheon in Grafton would be more accustomed to serving than being served.
Manager Rhonda Raven said getting her volunteer team together for a hearty meal is a great opportunity to say "thanks" for all the great work they do.
"We love our volunteers. Without them we couldn't offer such a great service to the community," Rhonda said. "That's why we try to give something back to our volunteers as often as we can."
The room was buzzing when The Daily Examiner stopped by Meals on Wheels headquarters in Grafton yesterday, just as an assortment of tempting foods began rolling out of the kitchen.
"Thanks to our cook Doug Morrissey, on the menu today we have pea and ham soup and French onion soup.
"The main meal is roast lamb, pork or chicken, served with baked vegetables, gravy and apple sauce."
If there was room for dessert, guests were offered their choice of Christmas pudding with custard cream or lemon meringue pie.
About 80 guests attended, the majority being volunteers.
