What we do

Meals on Wheels Community Services South Africa is a humanitarian initiative that strives to bring relief to the country’s less fortunate and aged, irrespective of colour, class or culture. As far as possible, help is granted wherever it is needed.

MOWCS serves the basic needs of the poorest of the poor, the vulnerable, the disabled and the elderly in society. The poorest of the poor refer to persons with little or no income such as old age pension, disability pension, and child care grants etc. The vulnerable include women with children, child headed households and orphans.

Target groups:

  • Previously disadvantaged groups,
  • Previously underdeveloped areas,
  • Targeting the poorest of the poor,
  • The vulnerable and the elderly.

Our Mission

To identify the social, health, family life, and welfare needs of the community and to co-ordinate, through our branches and service points, meaningful care, utilizing available resources, motivated by supreme love for God and impartial love for our fellow men - to the ultimate glory of God.

Our Challenges

We are still faced with imbalances of the past – most previously disadvantaged groups do not have access to formal infrastructure and facilities. Rectifying these imbalances are a priority for us. There are 12 million people facing hunger every day. We are currently serving just over a million people per month, so our task has only just begun!

We Need Your Help!

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of the Founder and Honorary Patron of Meals on Wheels Community Services, Dr. Denis Baird. Dr. Baird founded Meals on Wheels Community Services on the 16th of July 1964, serving 16 meals with just 1 vehicle to the community of Duncanville in East London. Through his vision of taking care of the hungry of South Africa, the organization has grown to 210 branches, 450 Service Points a fleet of 280 Vehicles touching the lives of over 2 million people on a monthly basis. He will be missed by all of us here at Meals on Wheels Community Services especially the calls of encouragement he would make and the concern that he always showed for the work of this programme that he started 52 years ago. Our sincerest condolences to his wife Bridget and the rest of his family. What he started so many years ago is still touching the lives of so many and will continue to make a difference in the lives of millions for years to come. We will miss him, Rest in Peace Dr Baird
