About Us

The Community Nutrition Network & Senior Services Association (CNNSSA) was born out of a meal service program operated by the Community Economic & Development Association (CEDA) in the 1970's

In the late 1990's, federal funding for senior services began to diminish. The Community Nutrition Network & Senior Services Association became a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization in 2000. In order to remain in full operation and be able to expand services to meet the growing need, the Meals on Wheels Foundation of Northern Illinois (MOWFNI) was created in 2001 as the fundraising, community outreach, and public awareness arm of Community Nutrition Network & Senior Services Association.

In 2005, Community Nutrition Network & Senior Services Association was awarded contracts to begin serving seniors in Grundy and Kendall Counties in addition to subur1ban Cook County. Community Nutrition Network & Senior Services Association is now one of the largest senior meal providers in the nation. Throughout these three counties, where service is provided, there are 9 Group-Dining sites, and 9 meal distribution hubs for the Home-Delivered Meal program.

Mission: The Community Nutrition Network and Senior Services Association "CNNSSA" provides meals and resources to older adults and persons with disabilities and assists them in leading active and healthy lives.

Vision: To live in an environment where seniors and persons with disabilities are valued and are an active part of our community.
