Community Catering Meals on Wheels, a part of COPE Galway, has been selected to take part in the 2014-2015 ID film project run by the Galway Film Centre and supported by Galway city and county councils.
Galway Film Centre, under its ID Film Projects Scheme, has been working with community groups to develop technical, practical, and personal skills in the area of documentary-making since 2000.
Having this opportunity provides a way for the organisation to tell its own story alongside the older people who use the service and its volunteers who deliver and help prepare the meals. It will provide a way to tell the wider community about the meals on wheels service and the very real impact that it has on the lives of older people. The daily visits, good nutrition, and the friendships that are developed along the way is sure to be a story worth telling.
