Gunnedah Meals on Wheels (MOW) have been pumping out more meals than ever with more staff signed up to cover new clients.
The community organisation recently signed on more than 100 new clients who had been sitting on a waiting list, which has meant that priorities needed to be made on who received frozen or fresh meals.
MOW president Colleen Fuller said clients who were incapable of heating up frozen meals were given mainly fresh meals so the organisation could serve as many people as possible.
"We've pretty well covered everyone we can cover and some days we can do frozen for some people who can look after themselves at home," Mrs Fuller said.
"Anyone that's not capable, they have our full support to have hot meals everyday.
"But if people receiving frozen meals have any problems they only have to call to switch to hot meals."
Mrs Fuller said MOW's cook and Parkview Hotel owner Greg Thomas had been flat out preparing meals, cooking about 60-80 meals daily.
"Greg's cooking non-stop ... to keep up with the frozen meals. 60 per cent are hot meals, and the rest are frozen," she told the NVI.
The organisation also has a new system in place for clients - each are given two signs to place in the front window of their home to let MOW staff know if they are fine or not everyday.
"We're checking windows off our list in between our delivery days. We need to keep checking on them so we've got a driver to do that as well," Mrs Fuller said.
She said MOW had been receiving so many calls that she requested people didn't ring between the hours of 11.30am-1.30pm as they were their peak hours.
"We're getting people ringing from Melbourne ... and all over our own state making sure their parents are set up for meals," she said.
Gunnedah MOW covers the town's limits, as well as Mullaley, Carroll, Curlewis and some Boggabri areas.
