Meals on Wheels Chicago hosts events throughout the year to raise both funds and awareness for our programs. We hope you’ll take advantage of these opportunities to support our mission and have fun at the same time! Make sure you tell your family and friends about these events, and follow us on social media for the latest event news and to find out when tickets go on sale. Our three main events – Chicago on Tap, the Golf Classic, and Celebrity Chef Ball – raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for our organization. These much needed funds directly support home meal delivery in Chicago for seniors and people with disabilities who are in need.


March for Meals 5K

March for Meals 5K

March 21 – 27, 2021
Participate in our virtual 5K from anywhere in the world!

The Meals on Wheels Chicago March for Meals 5K will raise awareness and funds for the home meal delivery program in Chicago. Your participation will support the Meals on Wheels Chicago program, which serves seniors and individuals with disabilities who are struggling with food insecurity. So many of our neighbors are in need right now so in addition to run/walking, we would love for you to “go the extra kilometer” and donate or raise funds with a peer-to-peer fundraising page.  The 5K run/ walk can be completed anywhere in the world March 21 – 27. Find a trail, park, treadmill, or track in your neighborhood and you’re all set!
