A meal donation program has been set up to support the family of television presenter Erin Jayne Plummer following her tragic death aged 42. 

The Studio 10 and TVSN infomercial host died ‘suddenly’ over the weekend, and is survived by her husband and their three daughters. 

Neighbours have since have rallied around the Plummer family by setting up an account with Meal Train – a website where people can collaborate to schedule, cook and deliver meals to those in need.

The website allows volunteers to select a specific day they’d like to deliver food and share the meal they plan to cook. 

So far, 59 people have volunteered to deliver home-cooked meals for Erin’s family, meaning that the Plummers won’t have to cook for themselves for the next two months. 

According to the page, the Plummers prefer meals to be dropped off between 5-6pm, and request that there are food options for one family member who is allergic to eggs, nuts and diary.

Erin was also a presenter for Aerobics Oz Style for six years. The instructional aerobics TV series, which aired from 1982 to 2005, had a global audience of 40 million people at its peak and was broadcast in more than 80 countries. 

But it was her role as a professional spruiker for which she was best known.

During her career hosting advertorials, she appeared on Studio 10, TVSN, Mornings with Kerri-Anne and The Morning Show, and earned the nickname ‘The Danoz Girl’.

In addition to her TV career, Erin was an accomplished synchronised swimmer who represented Australia at three world championships and won 11 national titles.
