Kosher Meals on Wheels was established in December 1973.
It was established as a not for profit organisation to supply kosher meals to penioners and elderly, sick and incapacitated persons as well as to other private hospitals whose in-patients required kosher food.
Since its inception, Kosher Meals on Wheels has become a significant welfare project which has supplied in excess of 1 million meals where financial hardship has been established.
The Organisation is quite unique in the Jewish community, as it was brought into being in association with a non-Jewish government run public hospital (Royal Southern Memorial) which helped build two efficient, well-equipped kitchens producing kosher food under the strictest of supervision. Originally, Rabbi Abranok from the inception of the organisation was the mashgiach (kosher supervisor) and then Rabbi Boruch Zaichyk from the Mizrachi organisation.
