WHO WE ARE
Meals on Wheels Northeastern Illinois is a powerhouse movement of neighbors volunteering to deliver fresh, healthy and delicious meals to those who are unable to prepare their own food at home. We serve not only senior citizens with our popular meals but also people with physical or cognitive disabilities and those who need help during a specific medical situation like recovering from surgery.
We also provide meal support for seniors on fixed incomes who are struggling to pay for housing, medicine, and food. In fact, we help more than 60% of our clients with reduced fees for our services.
We take our commitment as the premier provider of nourishment and support services to the community seriously. Our focus is on the health, well-being, and independence of our clients.
