Board of Directors

Thank you for your interest in Meals on Wheels Chicago. We have been serving the needs of homebound seniors and individuals with disabilities for 35 years, and we are proud of the positive impact we’ve made on the City of Chicago. Over the decades, volunteers have devoted countless hours to raising the resources so badly needed to support our homebound neighbors, none more so than past and current members of our Board of Directors. We are sincerely grateful for their devotion to our cause!
