Meals on Wheels Northeastern Illinois has been a proud member of Meals on Wheels America for many years, the premier association of meal delivery programs across the country.
We operated under the name Meals at Home since our inception, and our recent name change is an effort to align ourselves more closely with the larger brand.
Our nation’s senior population is growing rapidly. Today, one in 5 Americans is over 60 with an average life expectancy of 79 years. This means there are more and more people that need our services with every passing day, and we wanted to best position ourselves to help on a larger scale.
We want Meals on Wheels Northeastern Illinois to be accessible and easily understood by anyone who could benefit from access to our services and changing our name was a step in the right direction to do that.
Our day-to-day operations will remain the same. And our commitment to remain the premier provider of senior, homebound and disabled nourishment and support services is always steadfast.
