To support senior independence through meals, shelter, education, and community.
Meals On Wheels Atlanta (MOWA) was founded in 1965 to support seniors struggling with poverty, food insecurity, and social isolation. Over more than 50 years, we have grown from a small soup kitchen to an organization serving more than 514,000 meals each year throughout the Atlanta area. We have also expanded our program offerings to respond to other critical needs in our community. We now offer multiple services to support both older adults and veterans, including home-delivered and congregate meals, home repair services, and a food pantry.
In 2015, Meals On Wheels Atlanta launched a new strategic plan with aggressive goals to serve Atlanta’s most vulnerable seniors. Check out this video to learn more.
