THANK YOU 2019 CELEBRITY CHEFS!

Acclaimed chefs from all over the city donate their time, talent, and resources to our event. All of the food served at Celebrity Chef Ball is donated by our chefs! They make this event possible, and their generosity helps Meals on Wheels Chicago raise crucial funds for Chicago’s Home Meal Delivery Program, which serves 2.4 million meals to over 8,500 seniors and individuals with disabilities every year. We hope you join us on November 8th at Morgan Manufacturing for the incredible experience these chefs create for the benefit of our homebound neighbors in need!
