Meals on Wheels Chicago Keeping Independence on the Table: We’re working to eliminate hunger and isolation for Chicago’s homebound seniors and individuals with disabilities.
(10)

Meals on Wheels Chicago is committed to the belief that all individuals have the right to live independently with dignity in their own homes. Through monetary grants to our two City of Chicago agencies, it is our hope to reduce the number of home-bound seniors and individuals with disabilities in need. The programs we support share one common goal - to provide food security to those in need that in turn allows them to remain in their own homes.

After 34 years of serving Chicago's most vulnerable neighbors, we have witnessed firsthand how important it is to fight against systemic inequities that exist in our society. In honor of Juneteenth, Meals on Wheels Chicago is providing a special upgraded meal for seniors dining at Chicago Senior Services senior centers and is honoring the holiday as an organization - so the office is closed today!

Celebrating 33 years of MOWC

The mission of Meals on Wheels Chicago is to ensure that Chicago seniors and individuals with disabilities benefit from nutritious meal programs that improve their quality of life and maximize independence.

Even the most independent among us, if fortunate to live long enough, may experience a decline in mobility or health that can strip away our independence and diminish the quality of our lives. Great advances in medicine have extended our average life expectancy to a record high of 78.7 years. Living longer means more years spent in the struggles that accompany old age. Add to that the increase in geographic mobility of our families and the result is millions of seniors left behind, hungry and alone.

Federal funding traditionally has provided a significant foundation for the Meals on Wheels network. Recent reductions in funding from both federal and state sources on which Meals on Wheels programs rely exacerbate the widespread suffering felt by millions of vulnerable seniors and puts greater pressure on an already strained infrastructure.

This year marks the 33rd year of our very first home delivered meal on Thanksgiving. That day we delivered meals to 1,218 homebound seniors. Meals on Wheels Chicago’s partnership with the City of Chicago and Open Kitchens means that together we now provide millions of meals to thousands of Chicago’s homebound seniors and individuals with disabilities each year. The meal delivery program provides isolated and homebound people the opportunity to secure a more stable home environment, thus improving their quality of life. By reducing food insecurity and providing daily human contact, the Meals on Wheels program offers this vulnerable population the tools they need to maintain self-sufficient and dignified lives in the comfort and familiarity of their own residence.
