Nourish Our City
The Month of August
Nourish Our City is a month-long fundraiser throughout August in celebration of Meals on Wheels Chicago’s birthday. Our organization has been serving Chicago’s homebound for 33 years, and we are celebrating by raising awareness and funds to further our cause. Businesses all across the city are showing their support by sharing a portion of profit, offering one-of-a-kind experiences, or selling special items on behalf of the Meals on Wheels Chicago’s mission. Proceeds will support MoWC programs that improve quality of life and maximize independence for seniors and people with disabilities. A list of opportunities to support our mission in August is below!
