Volunteer from Home: Meals On Wheels Atlanta Share Hope

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, they have grown from a small soup kitchen to an organization serving more than 514,000 meals each year throughout the Atlanta area. They have also expanded our program offerings to respond to other critical needs in our community. MOWA now offers multiple services to support both older adults and veterans, including home-delivered and congregate meals, home repair services, and a food pantry.

For many MOWA homebound clients, the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing have resulted in even greater isolation. You can help share hope and brighten the lives of local seniors by writing a card or note of encouragement. Notes will be included in meal deliveries to Meals On Wheels Atlanta clients throughout Fulton County.

*Please note that this is a completely self-directed volunteer opportunity that can be done from home. Once you express interest, you can get started immediately. You will not receive a confirmation email. If you want volunteer with Meals On Wheels Atlanta in a different capacity, please contact them directly (https://mowatl.org/). This volunteer opportunity is not suitable for court ordered service.

  1. Please express interest below so we know you are participating.
