Help Us Keep Delivering This Holiday Season

For over 36 years, Meals on Wheels Chicago has been delivering holiday dinners to seniors in need.┬áSince that first delivery in 1988 to 1,218 homebound seniors, the need in our community has grown dramatically, and we now deliver to over 11,000 people every week. Until now, we’ve been able to keep up with demand because of the support of our donors – people like you who make donations to fund this critical program.

This year we are facing a funding crisis.

After years of rapid expansion to meet demand, triggered by the pandemic, cuts to SNAP benefits, and now inflation, our resources are stretched thin, and more than ever we need your help to get holiday meals to every senior in Chicago who is calling out for help.

1 in 6 seniors struggles with food insecurity, leading to impossible decisions like whether to pay for food or prescription medicine. By supporting Meals on Wheels Chicago you are providing so much more than a meal, relieving anxiety around food and giving low-income households more financial flexibility to pay for the essentials. Give today to support the overall health and well-being of seniors and individuals with disabilities living in our community.

Your gift will provide nutritious meals to seniors and individuals with disabilities who are in need.
