For 50 years, Meals On Wheels Atlanta has supported senior independence through meals, shelter, education and community. We deliver 130,000 nourishing meals to frail or homebound seniors in Atlanta annually, provide home repair services, 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.

Touching thank you letter from a Meals On Wheels Atlanta Client

We recently received a letter one of our clients. Please read - it will move you and give you a glimpse of what our meals can mean for our clients. Because of the nutritious meals we deliver to her, she does not need to choose between meals and medication or transportation. Like so many of our clients, she loves the visits from our volunteers and staff. Not only do we provide her a valuable service through our meals, we also decrease her isolation and loneliness.

Donate or volunteer to make the difference in the life a senior!

Thank you for your support!
