FANCY a Big Mac but too lazy to get up off the couch?
Soon, you might not have to.
Hervey Bay will become the first McDonald's restaurant in Queensland to offer home delivery during a trial later this month.
But not everyone is happy about it.
Member for Capricornia Michelle Landry yesterday voiced her concerns over the fast food giant's decision.
Ms Landry said if the trial was successful, the home delivery service could be rolled out to the rest of the state.
"We already have so many fast food outlets and drive throughs in Central Queensland," she said.
"It's very accessible already. I'm not knocking McDonalds, they employ a lot of people and provide fantastic training opportunities.
"But I don't think we need easier access to fast food."
The home delivery service will be available from 6pm to 9pm seven days a week throughout the trial period.
A delivery fee of $5 will apply, with a minimum order of $25.
Would you use a McDonalds home delivery service if offered in Rockhampton?
This poll ended on 22 August 2014.
Yes - 31%
No - 68%
This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.
Ms Landry said figures show Central Queensland has the third highest rate of obesity in the country.
"We're trying to push healthier eating and lifestyles and fast food delivery isn't helping," she said.
Ms Landry said maybe it was time to reconsider a fast food tax.
"The health system bearsthe cost of obesity," she said.
"Maybe it's something to look at in the long run."
She also suggested community cooking classes to encourage people to prepare their own meals.
