Social isolation and loneliness are harmful.

The holidays can be full of loneliness and uncertainty for many seniors in our community. A majority of our clients live alone and do not have family or loved ones close by to celebrate with. Of our meal recipients, 84% say that their delivery driver is the only social interaction they have for the whole week. A visit from their driver is just as vital as the healthy food they deliver.

Drivers provide a caring connection and a lifeline that seniors so desperately need, especially around the holidays. Our clients are comforted knowing they can rely on their drivers to show up every week, without fail.

Seniors need your support to help battle hunger and isolation. Your gift will make a direct and lasting impact for our clients, providing nutrition, dignity, hope, and a bit of holiday cheer!

At Meals on Wheels Chicago, we know Hunger Takes No Holiday.
