Over 450,000 older adults in Illinois are threatened by hunger. Your support helps delay the need for older adults or persons with disabilities to be in a long-term care or assisted living facilities which can be very costly to our participants. Being enrolled in the Meals on Wheels program keeps older adults and persons with disabilities healthier and more independent in their own surroundings. Your generous gift helps to cover the costs of maintaining and growing our direct service programs to the older adults across Cook, Kendall, Grundy, and Will Counties.
Thank you to all of our donors, monthly or one-time, who help ensure that No Older Adult Goes Hungry.
Your contribution is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. No goods or services were provided in
