Our clients pay what they can afford, depending on their income. The full cost of meals is $9.50/day. However, in this past year, Meals at Home covered over $250,000 in costs for nearly 200 clients because we believe that no one needs to go hungry.
Meals at Home only receives 6% of our total income from Federal funding for this work, mainly as part of a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) through the City of Evanston. Private foundations and individual donors provide 94% of our charitable funding.
Meet Anne… Anne grew up in Chicago, worked as a secretary, wrote a column “Around Chicago,” participates in the North Shore Village activities, and attends events at the Levy Center. She follows what’s happening in Evanston, the budget crisis in Springfield, events in Washington and activities internationally. An enthusiastic reader, Anne read Mary Stewart’s “Magical Merlin Trilogy” and David McCullough’s”1776″ and particularly enjoys reading John Grisham’s and Ken Follett’s books.
While Anne is very active, when Anne’s mobility decreased she found it increasingly difficult to shop and prepare meals. Someone suggested she contact Meals at Home, and she now receives food 3 days a week. She particularly enjoys the tuna and chicken salads from Jilly’s Café, the roast beef sandwich, and the “most delicious chocolate chip cookies” from Curt’s Café. “Meals at Home helped me to be as independent as I am,” says Anne.
