Behind the Wheel – David Tabak, Executive Director

In 2017, Meals on Wheels Chicago turns 30 years old.  Over the years we have served millions of meals to thousands of senior citizens and people with disabilities.  In order to serve a city of more than 200 square miles, we partner with the City of Chicago Department of Family and Support Services and the Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities for case management and Open Kitchens for meal preparation and delivery. Meals and Wheels Chicago fundraises to support their efforts.  We do not receive government funding and rely on the generous support of individuals, corporations and foundations.  This highly efficient partnership allows us to meet the needs of our homebound neighbors.  I offer “Behind the Wheel” to give you a behind-the-scenes look of how we meet or mission or to speak more generally of this issues facing senior citizens and people with disabilities.  If you have any questions, please contact me.  Thank you for the difference you make in the lives of senior and neighbors with disabilities.
