CAPE TOWN - Four new vehicles were donated to Meals on Wheels (MOW) and it means needy people will be getting free meals a lot faster.

One of the cars will be used solely in Khayelitsha to serve around 60,000 households three times a week.

Volunteers prepare the meals with donated ingredients.

Until now, the pots of food had to be carried by hand to 26 feeding centres.

MOW director Simbarashe Madzana said the vehicles will hopefully be the start of better things to come.

"MOW can now reach even more people in need of a hearty dish."
