Like other Meals On Wheels, we rely on a dedicated corps of volunteers to deliver consistent meals to our senior neighbors. But the seniors we serve fall into one of the most underserved and most vulnerable demographics in Atlanta.
For this reason, we go the extra mile. Since our humble beginnings in 1965 as a local soup kitchen, we’ve grown into a lifeline for all-around quality of life. The meals we serve are nutritious and delicious, prepared by our experienced chefs and dietician. We race to our seniors’ rescue with our robust home repairs program, our pet food supply, and our emergency food pantry. We’re on a mission to end senior hunger in Atlanta.
Most importantly, we couldn’t do any of it without supporters like you.
