Our History

The oldest Meals on Wheels organisation in Johannesburg, the Congregational Church Meals on Wheels (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.

“Our charity is dependent on donations and bequests”

How can you assist

You can make a financial contribution directly by EFT or bank deposit, Payfast or BackaBuddy to help us to continue our important work.

Donations Tax Deductible under section 18A of the Income Tax Act.


Donate Food Items or Products

We always need donations of food, toiletries, clothing and blankets. Please consider dropping off at our Centre or contact us to arrange collection. Our most urgent needs are breads and spreads, soup ingredients, good quality clothing, soap, deodorant and reusable containers.

Become a Volunteer

Join our family to distribute food at the soup kitchen or as a driver to deliver meals. We have many needs – if you have the time to give or are willing to volunteer professional services, we would love to chat to you or you can contact us through our Volunteer portal
