Nutrition programs in Georgia have been widely promoted. We find facilities in each city or region that offer free meal to needy, which significantly contributes to hunger prevention in country.
However, there are many low-income seniors who are home-bound or have moderate to severe physical restrictions which make them unable to visit the free meal facilities.
We want to deliver meals to individuals who are unable to afford nourishing meals needed to maintain health and well-being. Our goal is to meet recipients' nutritional needs, consider their health conditions, pay friendly visits, keep them company and simply light up their days to ensure that they remain well nourished and connected to the community.
We, as a group of friends, have started Meals on Wheels venture since February 1, 2016. Through donations collected among co-workers and wide circle of friends we are now delivering meals to 18 recipients (8 routes) on weekly basis. Meals are cooked in turns by volunteers at their homes and distributed by two vehicles, which also rotate.
Since most of the budget is spent on food products, we don't have enough fuel money to distribute meals to more recipients and unfortunately for us we are unable to include them in our venture.
We highly desire to increase the number of recipients as financial resources will enable us to purchase more food products and cook meals in large quantities at our homes. The challenge is the distribution. With fuel supply, we could increase the number of recipients up to 30 individuals. It will also be beneficial to have one large cooking pan to prepare dishes into one vessel and not in several pans simultaneously as we do now. The pan will move from one volunteer to another on weekly basis.
We will continue collecting donations at work, among friends, plan to organize fundraising event and ultimately attract the sponsor. In the interim we kindly request your support throughout 10 months in order to satisfy distribution needs for increased number of recipients.
