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.
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.
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!

A brand new Donated vehicle was delivered to them on the 4th of February 2015, which will definitely help to feed the hungry.
