In 2016 Meals on Wheels Chicago launched an Emergency Meals Program, providing shelf-stable
food packs to the homebound seniors and individuals with disabilities we serve. Shelf-stable food
is an ideal solution when home delivered meals cannot be distributed. These meals do not
require refrigeration and can be consumed at room temperature. Shelf-stable food offers peace of
mind to clients and will be delivered prior to emergencies or bad weather.
To find out if you or a loved one is eligible to receive meals, please call (312) 744-4016/ (TTY) 744-6777 or make an online Senior Services Assessment request here
