The Kane Senior Council is in need of volunteers to deliver meals to frail and homebound seniors in Kane County.

Meals on Wheels are delivered 5 days a week, Monday through Friday, from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Deliveries typically take an hour.


Requirements to volunteer are a valid driver's license, current car insurance, a background check and to attend a volunteer training.

In addition to Meals on Wheels drivers, the Kane Senior Council is always in need of volunteers for the Community Dining locations to help serve food to those seniors that attend Community Dining.

If interested in delivering meals or any of the volunteer opportunities, visit www.KaneSeniorCouncil.org or contact Kane Senior Council at (630) 338-0999 for more information.

While Kane Senior Council is a new organization, they have deep roots in the senior community. In fact, the roots go back to 1975 when the DuPage Senior Citizens Council began advocating and providing services for seniors in need in DuPage County.

The DuPage Senior Citizens Council/Kane Senior Council is a nonprofit 501(c)(3), volunteer-driven organization, dedicated to helping seniors live with safety and dignity.

Kane Senior Council provides Meals on Wheels, community dining, well-being checks, pet care and food assistance, and intergenerational activities.
