MOWOC’s four staff members work closely with our volunteers to meet the needs of a growing waiting list of local residents who could be served if more meals and more volunteers were available. MOWOC’s goal is to provide seven meals per week instead of the current five meals. The ability to freeze and store meals allows MOWOC to make once-per-week meal deliveries to more remote areas of the county that previously had not been served because of the time, distance, and volunteer commitment required. The desired outcome is meal delivery to more elder adults in need, including those who have not been eligible to receive meals because of their geographic location in the county. Additional income will be needed to increase meal service. More volunteers are being recruited for meal service, handyman work, and friendly visitors to accommodate additional clients.
Frozen meals are delivered Monday-Friday to clients throughout Coweta County. These meals are prepared our cook and packaged by volunteer kitchen assistants in MOWOC's kitchen at 8 Savannah Street in Newnan.
Handyman repairs make clients’ homes safer and help prevent accidents. These repairs may include: installing wheelchair ramps, grab bars, repairs to steps, windows, doors, replacing light bulbs, and more.
Friendly Visitors help combat loneliness. Many clients have no family or friends who visit regularly.
