Home-Delivered Meals

With hunger on the rise, demand for meals is putting an enormous strain on our resources. Our current kitchen space is maxed out.

At MOWA, we know food isn’t one-size-fits-all. Our chefs and dietician prepare meals for a variety of dietary restrictions, including:

Heart healthy

Carb-controlled

Modified

Small and bite-sized

Vegetarian

Kidney friendly

Ensure only

Our team, with the help of our essential volunteers, hits the streets every week to deliver nutritious meals.

Check out our volunteers page to get involved!

This program is 97% funded by private donations.

Any amount helps – just $8 feeds a senior for a day. $3,000 feeds a senior for an entire year!

Food Pantry

MOWA’s pantry program serves as a critical stop-gap for emergency situations.

Pantry supplies also provide for seniors who want to continue cooking and preparing foods in the home. Pantry deliveries contain a month-long supply of dry goods.

I have been eating off a jar of peanut butter all week.

Despite spending her entire life working, Margaret, an 85-year-old homebound senior, faced a dire need for food. Fortunately, thanks to our emergency food pantry, MOWA was able to answer her call with a 30-day supply of food.

MOWA launched our Pet Pantry when delivery volunteers noticed our seniors sharing their meals with their dogs or cats.

Pet Pantry

Because of their income restrictions, our seniors often struggle to provide their furry friends with the care they need – but sometimes, their pets are the only family they have.

MOWA sprung into action, partnering with the Atlanta Humane Society to supplement our seniors’ meals with pet food upon request.

Unopened bags or cans of dog or cat food (preferably dry and in bags of 20 lbs or less)

Unopened dog or cat treats

New and unused dog or cat toys

New containers of kitty litter

New containers to store dog or cat toys

Family Style and Congregate Meals

MOWA’s group meals offerings generate revenue that we invest back into our meals services programs to feed more seniors.

We provide high-quality health, nutrition, and support services and subject matter expertise dedicated to the improvement of the overall quality of life of local seniors and other groups in need.

All meal offerings are designed by MOWA’s executive chef and registered dietitian to be balanced and portion-controlled.

Nutrition Education and Cooking Demo Experience

Join MOWA for one-hour nutrition education sessions with our Executive Chef, Robert Gerstenecker.

Each session can be customized to meet the needs of your team, includes engaging Q&A with our experts, and provides a take-home recipe card.

Like our family style and congregate meals program, cooking demos generate funding that supports our core mission of feeding local seniors.
