70% of the seniors we serve rely on MOWA as their only source of food.

Our seniors face extreme challenges like disability, poverty, and isolation – but MOWA is here to ensure that no senior goes hungry.

I do not receive enough money monthly to buy food, but now I can wake up and enjoy nutritious meals.

We’re more than just a meal, providing rotating food options that are tasty, healthy, and varied.

MOWA is the difference between an empty plate and a nourishing meal – but we can’t make that difference without you.

Your food has been a tremendous help during this time for me and my wife.‍

This quote comes from a senior who used to be a delivery driver with Meals On Wheels in Hall County, and never thought he would need Meals On Wheels’ services later in life.

With one in four seniors in our community facing hunger, we need your help now more than ever.

What we do:

Meals On Wheels Atlanta was founded in 1965 to support seniors struggling with poverty, food insecurity, and social isolation. 

We have grown from a small soup kitchen to an organization serving more than 1,800 meals a day throughout Atlanta.

MOWA has expanded its program offerings…

to respond to other critical needs in our community. MOWA offers more than home-delivered and family-style meals; we provide socialization, safety, communications, as well as nutrition.

Meals On Wheels relies on volunteers – looking to get involved?

Our home-delivered meals program…

provides metro Atlanta seniors with consistent, nutritious food freshly prepared by a renowned executive chef along with an experienced kitchen staff and a registered dietician. We also provide food pantry items monthly for seniors and their pets.

Need Meals?

We also offer home repair services that extend a senior’s ability to age in place.

MOWA’s home-delivered meals program raises 97% of its funding from private donations each year.

MOWA faces an urgent capacity crisis:

Our commercial kitchen operations have been maxed out for over a year.

We increased the total output of our meals services program by 48% in 2019 and again by 17% in 2020. In 2021, MOWA began a building renovation project, with construction partners Choate Construction, ASD SKY, and Design Galleria Kitchen and Bath Studio. When our building renovation and new kitchen are completed in fall 2021, we will be able to grow to…

3,500

meals per day.
