Meals on Wheels

A Reliable Source of Fresh and Healthy Meals

Hunger is a rising problem in Chicago. Over the past three years, the number of households facing malnutrition has more than doubled, making Chicago the third-largest community of food-insecure people in the United States. This long-term problem affects a person’s health and is associated with chronic depression, anxiety, and stress. The good news is there is a solution.

Meals on Wheels Chicago delivers quality food to the people who need it most. “Your gift provides sustenance and security,” says Elise Geiger, Meals on Wheels Chicago’s executive director. “Thanks to our supporters, there is a reliable source of nourishment and hope for vulnerable seniors and people with disabilities. Our clients trust that every week their loyal driver will bring healthy meals right to their door, providing them with crucial nutrients as well as peace of mind.”

Every dollar helps. “We hope you will consider sharing gifts of joy and comfort during the holiday season by providing meals to the thousands of neighbors in Chicago who are facing hunger.”
