The Meals On Wheels Foundation of Northern Illinois

Main Website​

As the Front End Developer for The Meals on Wheels Foundation of Northern Illinois, I have created and maintained multiple websites servicing older adults in the Cook County area. These websites are built with WordPress and utilize custom themes that were translated from static websites I coded and designed. After maintaining these websites for over a year, I have learned quite a bit about maintaining custom themes as well as best practices for dealing with dynamic data with custom post types, and taking advantage of plugins such as Advanced Custom Fields. We also have a dedicated Google Analytics system that is maintained in collaboration with Sarah’s Best Marketing, which has helped me learn more about the importance of SEO and marketing.

Corporate Giving

This WordPress website was built as an extension of The Meals On Wheels Foundation of Northern Illinois in order to attract more corporate sponsorships and clients. Its purpose was to showcase the foundation’s current corporate sponsors, as well as upcoming and past opportunities to volunteer with the foundation. This website relies heavily on a parent theme I coded that integrates the usage of custom post types and Advanced Custom Fields to display dynamic data.

eCommerce with Shopify

The client required an eCommerce site that would allow volunteers to redeem free merchandise, as well as provide the option to purchase merchandise on a donation based model. For this project, I modified a pre-existing base Shopify theme (Storefront) in order to incorporate the foundations’ fonts, colors, and overall aesthetic. In addition to setting up the basic eCommerce features for them, I created coupons that utilized conditional logic in order to make sure that each volunteer would receive the appropriate amount of free merchandise.

Community Nutrition Network Association

This WordPress website is more or less a clone of The Meals On Wheels Foundation of Northern Illinois website, give or take a few pages at the request of the client. Due to technicalities within the foundation, they are technically two separate websites. Nevertheless, it is worth the mention!
