MOWOC’s five staff members work closely with our volunteers at our Savannah Street location to meet the needs of a growing waiting list of local residents who are served as more meals and more volunteers are available. MOWOC’s provides meals to all our clients through two plans geared to meet the individual circumstances. One provides 5 meals per week and the second provides 7 meals per week. 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 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 and more volunteers are needed to increase meal service. We welcome more volunteers for meal service, handyman work, and friendly visitors to accommodate additional clients.
The historic home which houses Meals on Wheels of Coweta is maintained by Jack Madliak. His experience and skill keeps the 1851 building in tip-top shape and provides an attractive lawn to greet our volunteers.
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.
