Meals on Wheels

This program supports the independence of community members by providing a hot, well-balanced noon meal 365 days a year. Count on our meal delivery every day between 10:30 a.m. and noon — rain, sleet, or snow! Please note, we are still offering Meals on Wheels through the COVID-19 pandemic.

Meals on Wheels has been delivering hot meals in the Pontiac city limits for more than 50 years. This program serves anyone — no age or income restrictions apply. The meals include a variety of cooked meats, vegetables, salads, fruits, and desserts, and the charge for this services is only $5 per meal. Meal recipients are billed monthly. If you are interested in this service, please call (815) 844-6131 and ask for Shelly Lewis or Evelyn Alford to set up services.


Grief Support Group

Support groups bring together people facing similar issues, whether that’s illness, relationship problems, or major life changes. Members of support groups often share experiences and advice, which can be helpful just getting to talk with other people who are in the same situation.
While not everyone wants or needs support beyond that offered by family and friends, you may find it helpful to turn to others outside your immediate circle. A support group can help you cope better and feel less isolated as you make connections with others facing similar challenges.

Evenglow’s Chaplain is available to meet for personal prayer or pastoral counseling. Please call (815) 844-6131 ext. 267


We are still offering SilverSneakers fitness classes. Please visit our Facebook group page here.

Classes are every Thursday at the First United Methodist Church in Pontiac. Class starts at 11:15 am. 

SilverSneakers is a program encouraging older adults to participate in physical activities that will help them maintain greater control of their health. It sponsors activities and social events designed to keep seniors healthy while encouraging social interaction. Many Medicare Advantage plans cover the cost to join class. The Lodge at Evenglow is a certified SilverSneakers Flex Site. If you are interested in attending class, please contact Amy Eppel at (815) 844-6131.
