Meals On Wheels Atlanta Announces New Look, Name

Atlanta Student Designs Winning Logo

Meals On Wheels Atlanta announced today that Bill Ellington, a student at American Intercontinental University in Atlanta, is the winner of the new logo contest for Meals On Wheels Atlanta. Bill will receive a $1000 prize this Wednesday generously donated by Monica and John Pearson.

The logo contest was judged by local artists: photographer Lucinda Bunnen; painter Radcliffe Bailey; Cartoon Network Creative Director, Damon Pittman; the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s political cartoonist Mike Luckovich; David Cohen, brand strategist; Equation Arts and High Museum of Arts curator, and Michael Rooks.

“We are so excited about our new look and new name,” stated Jeffrey Smythe, Executive Director. “Meals On Wheels Atlanta has such great name recognition and trustworthiness.”

Meals On Wheels Atlanta will become the new name for Senior Citizen Services of Metropolitan Atlanta (SCS) this spring. SCS began delivering nutritious meals to seniors through its Meals On Wheels Atlanta program in 1970 and is the oldest provider of home-delivered meals in the city. Meals On Wheels Atlanta delivers more than 300 meals daily and nearly 106,000 meals each year.

The award announcement will take place Wednesday, March 28th at 2 p.m. at Senior Citizen Services, 1705 Commerce Dr NW, Atlanta, 30318.
