Welcome to the inaugural edition of Behind the Wheel, the newsletter for friends of Meals on Wheels Chicago. Behind the Wheel demonstrates and celebrates the generous contributions of donors like you. Your generosity ensures that our older neighbors receive a nutritious meal on holidays and provides daily sustenance to our neighbors with disabilities.
This newsletter was on the press just as the Trump administration proposed eliminating one funding source for meals on wheels programs. The outpouring of generosity and concern for the people we serve was overwhelming and we are truly grateful. Thankfully these are proposals only and we will be sure to keep you informed of any updates as they arise.
As you read, Behind the Wheel, we hope you will take pride in what you have enabled Meals on Wheels Chicago to accomplish. We thank you for truly making a diffidence in the lives of older Chicagoans and those with disabilities.
