Thank you St. Francis Hospital , Glenbrook Hospital, and Three Crowns Park for Providing Meals to Our Clients.
Hello and Welcome to Open Kitchens, Our New Food Provider
Meals at Home's first delivery originated in St. Francis Hospital's kitchen in 1968. Over the years, Three Crowns Park and Northshore University Health Systems Glenbrook joined our team to ensure seniors in our communities receive fresh, nutritious meals. We thank you all for your work on behalf of our clients.
As times have changed and our needs have changed and grown, Meals at Home has looked for a solution to serving more clients in a way that is sustainable and scalable. With these needs in mind, Meals at Home has contracted with a new food provider, Open Kitchens. Open Kitchens is based in Chicago and currently provides food for several organizations, including the Meals on Wheels Chicago program. Open Kitchens will provide daily fresh meals, as we had been receiving from the hospitals, and volunteers will collect the meals from designated pick-up spots and make daily deliveries as usual. Northshore University Health Systems Evanston Hospital will continue to provide special medical diets to clients who require these meals, along with the general diet meals that they provide. Hecky's Barbeque and Jilly's Cafe will also continue as usual.
We look forward to working with Open Kitchens. We are confident that our service will continue as it has, and that clients will enjoy the new food. During this transition, we also look forward to continuing our own work toward a future community kitchen.If you have any questions, please call Debi Genthe, Executive Director, at 847-332-2678.
