The home meal delivery program in Chicago relies heavily on funding from the federal level. The national Meals on Wheels office coordinates advocacy efforts on behalf of all Meals on Wheels programs, and you can find the latest news on budget negotiations and new policy efforts here on our website. It’s important to stay informed so supporters can help advocate for funding for home meal delivery programs. As it is, current federal funding levels for our program aren’t enough. Meals on Wheels Chicago fills budget gaps by raising funds from individual donors, foundations, and corporations, and as the need for our services grows, so will the need for more federal funds.
