Score Big Against Hunger!
The 26th Annual Holiday Meals on Wheels Celebrity Chefs Brunch will take place on Sunday November 5, 2017 from 10:30am to 3:00 pm at Drury Lane in Oakbrook Terrace, IL.
With a fun and energetic sports theme we will rally together to “Score Big Against Hunger!”
Hosted by Andy Avalos, of channel NBC5, the Celebrity Chefs Brunch combines a gourmet multi-course meal with a fun theme, silent and live auctions.
All money raised will help support aging services and allow Holiday Meals on Wheels to achieve its goal of providing hungry, at-risk elders with the most basic of human needs, one nutritious meal a day, every day.
In 2016, 38,000+ nutritious meals were provided to seniors in the counties we serve.
In addition to the food delivery, friendly and familiar volunteers provide a wellbeing check for seniors that may otherwise not have any other daily interaction.
Please join us and the community as we continue to support aging services in our area by ensuring that our most vulnerable and elderly get the meals, support, care and respect that they deserve.
Tickets are $100 and are 100% tax deductible.
All proceeds of the event go to aging services and the Holiday Meals on Wheels program.

Do YOU expect to eat 7 days a week? Many elders cannot. Holiday Meals on Wheels fills the gap of the publicly-funded weekday program to provide our vulnerable and nutritionally at-risk elders with the most basic of human needs, one nutritious meal a day, every day!
Food insecurity - problems with the availability, accessibility and utilization of food - among low-income elders (age 60 and up) is a special concern since they may have unique nutritional needs and may require special diets for medical conditions.
Due to increasing demand and insufficient funding, the publicly funded meals program is limited to only one hot meal per day, Monday thru Friday. No meals are provided on weekends, let alone holidays under the publicly funded program. Many elders must choose between food, medicine, utilities, and other necessities of living!
