Meals on Wheels Northeastern Illinois is a powerhouse movement of neighbors delivering meals to seniors, individuals with physical and cognitive disabilities, Veterans, and anyone else who is unable to prepare their own food. We provide short-term services to help during a medical situation like recovering after surgery, or long-term services to support a healthy life.

Our friendly volunteers deliver two nutritious prepared meals a day, one hot and one cold, to our clients. The meals are prepared fresh every day by our partner kitchens and delivered Monday through Saturday between 11:30 am and 1:30 pm.
Our volunteers visit with our clients in person or on the phone. These visits are available upon request. Many of our clients and volunteers say they’ve made some great friends through the visiting part of our program.
Our volunteers will go to the grocery store for our clients to pick up a variety of foods, toiletries, and paper products. Besides the cost of the groceries themselves, there is no additional fee for this service.
