Welcome to The Meals on Wheels Family

The Heart That Gives, Gathers.

Meals on Wheels is a multi-faceted welfare non-profit organization tasked with helping poverty-stricken South Africans with nutritious meals and food security. Our aim is a hunger-free country, ensuring every elderly person and child can go to bed with a full tummy. To accomplish this enormous feat, we’ll need all the help we can get and would love you to get involved with us…

Your Sponsorship Makes a Difference

Your sponsorship makes a huge difference, you would think that planting a single tree would make no difference in the world, but we would have no trees if everyone felt that way. The same applies to giving; if we all do just a little, together we can do so much.

How are we making a difference?

Through countless efforts and generous donations from caring individuals and organizations, we have served over 31 million meals per annum. In addition to many other services, such as our Caregiver Service, Orphan Service, and Eco Garden Service, we have truly made a substantial difference in South Africa. Still, we are far from burying poverty forever. For that, we will need more help than ever before. Please take that pledge and help us make SA a hunger-free country.
