Lombard, IL (March 26, 2020)– AgeGuide, the Area Agency on Aging for Northeastern Illinois, is announcing effective April 1, 2020, a change in operators for its Older Americans Act (OAA) home delivered and community dining program in Will county.
Effective April 1, service will be provided by Community Nutrition Network & Senior Services Association (CNNSSA), a long time provider of home delivered meals in Cook, Grundy, and Kendall counties and a member of Meals on Wheels America. Community Nutrition Network will provide home delivered meals to current clients and will continue community dining programs in 9 locations.
“We look forward to utilizing Community Nutrition Network’s knowledge and experience with senior nutrition being implemented in Will County,” said Marla Fronczak, Chief Executive Officer for AgeGuide Northeastern Illinois. “The primary goals of this transition are to have a seamless changeover for the home delivered meal client and to expand the community dining program.”
Community Nutrition Network has been in existence since the 1970s. In 2005, they were awarded contracts to begin serving older adults in Grundy County, Kendall County and suburban Cook County and is now one of the largest senior meal providers in the nation.
Funding for Older American Act meals is partially provided by federal and state funds in combination with funds from community partners and donations. AgeGuide Northeastern Illinois administers Older American Act funds for an eight-county area including DuPage, Grundy, Kane, Kankakee, Kendall, Lake, McHenry, and Will Counties.
