Giving Pantry & Live, Online Support Groups:
In partnership with Operation Meal Plan, Widow Strong is now a twice-weekly food distributor to widowed families and those that are food-insecure with hot, individually-prepared, restaurant meals. The meals are courtesy of very generous individuals who are contributing to Operation Meal Plan, a fund started by the Cobb Chamber at Cobb Community Foundation. In this partnership with The Center for Family Resources, restaurants are supplying these meals at cost to help non-profits and help keep their employees employed. This is a partnership between community members and non-profits who care deeply for those in our community who are especially struggling during this difficult time.
Our Team at Widow Strong, in connection with Operation Meal Plan, is honored to feed widows, solo moms, the elderly, and families thanks to this amazing program, its donors, partners, and coordinators! Please read the distribution details in the “about” sections of the following links.

As the founder, I am a widowed mom and it is my honor to serve full-time. Every donation keeps me on this mission and the Widows’ Center open and operating so we may continue fulfilling the call of James 1:27 by providing vital programs and services both in-person and virtually to widows and their children.

Friends, your donations do not determine whether a family will receive help from Widow Strong. At this critical time, we strive to serve everyone who comes to our door, widowed or not. You donations keep our doors open, staffed, and supplied so that we may continue to serve. Yes, there are grants and we have applied and continue to apply for them. Grants take time.
Individual donations are still the fastest way to provide fuel for our fire. And just to be clear, your donations do not directly pay for meals supplied by Operation Meal Plan. Those meals are generously provided free-of-charge through Operation Meal Plan to Widow Strong.
