A Moveable Meal
Meals On Wheels Atlanta (MOWA) delivers more than 500,000 meals each year to Atlanta seniors struggling with poverty, social isolation and food insecurity. The nonprofit, which started as a small soup kitchen in 1965, has outgrown its current facility and the team at DESIGN GALLERIA KITCHEN AND BATH STUDIO is leading the charge to build out a new kitchen and entertainment space. “It’s a natural fit for us,” explains the firm’s marketing director, Rachel Martin, who also serves on MOWA’s board. “Community involvement is something our entire team feels strongly about; we can all become actively involved in a project of the scale.” David Cook, one of Design Galleria’s designers, is managing the project, which will include engaging a local architect, builder and manufacturers to donate time, talent and materials. The new space tops out at 7,200 square feet of interior space, plus a courtyard and will serve as both a functional kitchen for making nutritious meals and an elegant venue for hosting events to raise funds.
