Healthy, Fresh and Convenient — From Our Kitchen to Your DoorView Plans
Open Kitchens offers a Meals-On-Wheels Program that delivers home-style meals to private homes in Chicago. The program is ideal for senior citizens, convalescents and persons with disabilities.
We offer a variety of different special diet meals, each planned by a registered dietician using low-calorie, low-fat, and low sodium ingredients where applicable. All meals are freshly prepared and neatly packaged in easy-to-open, recyclable containers.
Nutritionally balanced home delivered meals are prepared from scratch in our central kitchen. Meals meet or exceed 1/3 RDA requirements and are prepared with no added salt. On average our meals contain 1,200mg per meal or less of sodium.
Each meal package includes:
> a meat or protein entree
> a potato, rice or pasta side dish
> a vegetable side dish
> fresh fruit or dessert
> margarine and condiments
Meals can be delivered cold or hot, depending on the plan you select. Cold meals come with heating instructions for both microwaves and ovens to allow the client to enjoy at their convenience.
We care about making sure your meals are delivered complete, on-time and fresh. Our trucks have been specially designed for food storage. Our drivers are friendly and professional and will always make sure you have everything you need.
Delivery is available anywhere within the Chicago city limits, but is limited to one address per account. If you have any questions about eligibility, please see the map below or contact us.
We offer 2 subscription options. Each plan provides enough for 2 meals per day for 5 days. The standard 10 Meal Plan is delivered all together on the same day (your choice) each week. It includes 1 cold meal and 1 hot meal (at-home heating required). The Hot Plan includes the same 10 meals per week, except they will be divided into 5 separate deliveries. 2 meals will be delivered each day, 1 cold and 1 hot, and the hot meal will be delivered hot and ready to serve.
After selecting a plan, you will be required to sign up for an account and then provide credit card information for payments. The payment for the first month will be processed immediately. Recurring payments will automatically be billed monthly to the credit card on file. You are free to cancel any time, but you will continue to receive the meals for remainder of the month (no pro-rating). Cancellations made within 7 days of the next billing date will not be honored until the following month.
When signing up, you will be required to specify both a billing address (associated with credit card) and a delivery address. These do not have to match, but the delivery address must be within the Chicago city limits, and you will be limited to a single delivery address per subscription. For the 10 Meal Plan, you will able to select a preferred delivery day each week. Deliveries are made between 9 am and 1 pm.
