About

Our Mission: For 50 years, Meals On Wheels Atlanta (MOWA) has supported senior independence through meals, shelter, education and community. We deliver 130,000 nourishing meals to homebound seniors in Atlanta annually, provide home repair service, manage seven senior centers, an Adult Day Health Center focused on helping seniors and their families manage Alzheimer's and dementia, and a senior companion program. The number of seniors grows daily as does the need for our services.

Outline of Senior Meal Delivery: Meal delivery benefits seniors who are unable to prepare or afford the nutrition they need due to extenuating circumstances such as, a disability or extreme poverty. When designing our menus, we consult with a certified nutritionist, which enables us to offer meals that meet most dietary restrictions.

Outline of Senior Our Volunteers opportunity with Meal Delivery: Meal Delivery is our greatest need for volunteers and it is an impactful opportunity for families and small groups to participate in. Volunteers deliver numerous meals to our homebound seniors. Volunteers should arrive at 9 am for a brief orientation session and allow roughly 2 hours for delivery. Volunteers need to provide their valid driver’s license and proof of auto insurance. Also, we conduct a criminal background check on all adult volunteers who deliver meals.
