Wellington Quota Remains Dedicated to Meals on Wheels


When the number of homebound seniors grew in Wellington, New Zealand, in the late 1960s, the local Quota club addressed a growing concern for their well-being by implementing the Meals on Wheels program.

In 1967, when Edith Cashel was club president, Wellington Quota introduced the service concept in their city. Now, after 27 years, the program is still going strong—with Quota’s help. Members volunteer to deliver meals, and the club regularly donates funds to support the effort.
