New Pantry Program for Seniors – Meals in Motion

SCS is proud to announce the launch of a new sub-program of Meals On Wheels Atlanta – Meals in Motion, a food pantry program.

The objective of this program is to provide current Meals On Wheels Atlanta clients the choice to select the standard, nutritious prepared meals or if they have the capability to cook for themselves from the provided grocery bags of food for the week.

SCS will subsidize this program through the Atlanta Community Food Bank (ACFB), but ACFB does not always have all the necessary types of food needed to sustain our program. Therefore, we will be reaching out to churches, other nonprofits, civic groups, and businesses to host Food Drives. (If interested in hosting a Food Drive, contact Yolanda Walker at 404-351-3889 ext. 250).

What a great way to get involved – simply host a Food Drive that benefits low-income seniors in Atlanta.
