Our History

The oldest Meals on Wheels organisation in Johannesburg, Meals on Wheels Johannesburg Food Distribution Services  (also known as Yeoville Meals on Wheels), was founded in August 1961 when the Municipality of Johannesburg approached Trinity Congregational Church (then situated in Braamfontein) to distribute food parcels to the elderly and needy. Subsequently operations moved to Yeoville and the delivery of meals started for pensioners and the disabled. 

Our organisation is almost entirely dependent on donations and bequests. Our services depend on the help of volunteers, most of whom are retired. We would like to thank all of our volunteers and supporters for everything that they do to sustain our essential services to those in need.

Imagine going to school hungry?

Meals on Wheels Johannesburg Food Distribution Services ensures that thirty children do not go to school hungry. These children come to the center from 6 am onwards to receive a lunch pack containing a sandwich, a juice and a snack. For many of these children it is the only meal that they receive throughout the day.

School runs for 204 days per annum, which is translated into R186 000 per year to feed our children.
