Meals on Wheels
Senior citizens, 60 years old and older, who are unable to get out to shop for themselves due to physical limitations or who are simply unable to drive, can receive a hot lunch delivered to their home. The Program not only provides a hot meal, but it also provides a well being check of the senior every weekday.
The Meals on Wheels Program provides a hot lunch five days a week, delivered between 10:00am and 2:00pm. A spouse or caretaker living in the household can also qualify even if they are not 60. In addition, frozen meals that can be easily prepared on the weekend, are available.
The Meals on Wheels Program works in partnership with West Suburban Senior Services (WSSS) and conducts a background check on their drivers, many of whom are Village of Franklin Park employees.
The cost of a daily meal is a suggested donation of $3.25-$3.50, but anyone in need of the program should apply.
To learn more about the program, please call WSSS at (708) 547-5600 or contact Meals on Wheels at (847) 678-8777 to sign up.
