Our Home Delivered Meal program is looking for new participants! If you are a senior 60 or above and home bound, we deliver meals to your door throughout all of Grundy County. We also have funding to provide a second nutritious meal for the day and meals on the weekends. There is no financial requirement you just need to meet the age requirement. If you are interested please give us a call at 815-941-1590.
We are in need of meal delivery drivers for our home delivered meal program. Our routes are Morris, Minooka, Coal City/Gardner and we have some drivers that come to Morris and pick up the food and then meet drivers in either Minooka or Coal City. It could be one day a week, one day a month, or even one day a year whatever works for you. Please call Marge, Nancy or Patty at 815-941-1590 to inquire.
Our congregate meal program offers many opportunities for you to have a hot nutritious meal for a great price!

These meals are catered and cost $6.
