Mission and Vision
Meals on Wheels Kendall County delivers frequent in-home visits that provide unique opportunities to meet nutritional needs, combat social isolation, address safety hazards, and provide holistic care.
Every weekday Meals on Wheels prepares and delivers more than a meal to our senior friends and neighbors. Frequent in-home visits provide unique opportunities to meet nutritional needs, combat social isolation, address safety hazards and provide holistic care.
Meals on Wheels has been guided by a single goal since the first known U.S. delivery by a small group of Philadelphia citizens in 1954 – to support our senior neighbors to extend their independence and health as they age. What started as a compassionate idea has grown into one of the largest and most effective social movements in America, currently helping nearly 2.4 million seniors annually in virtually every community in the country.
