Grundy County News June 2017
Our Home Delivered Meal program is ready to assist 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. If you are interested please give us a call at 815-941-1590.
Our congregate meal program offers many opportunities for you to have a hot nutritious meal for a great price! Look at our congregate meal menu for the dates, times and places showing where we will be during the month. We travel to Coal City, Mazon and Minooka, and even R Place in Morris! These meals are catered and cost $6.
We also serve a congregate lunch at Saratoga Towers in Morris Monday through Friday at 11:30 AM followed by Bingo (provided we have our minimum of 5 participants.) The cost for these meals depend on the day but is either a suggested donation of $3.50 or $6 per person. We do ask that you RSVP to 815-941-1590 by 9AM the day ahead so we are able to make sure we have enough food for everyone.
Whistle Stop Café and R Place both provide a senior meal twice a month for $6. We also offer Great Plates meal coupons that are good for either R Place or Whistle Stop, and those are $6 each. They are usable at any time when you make your meal selection from their “Great Plates” menu. You use that coupon to pay for your meal and of course, please tip your wait staff.
Our next Monthly party at Saratoga Towers is Wednesday, June 14th for our Father’s Day Lunch! Lunch served at 11:30AM and you don’t have to live at the Towers to participate, just let us know you are coming and we’ll make sure to keep the door open for ya!
We are looking for meal delivery drivers for our home delivered meal program. 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.
To our volunteers – THANK YOU! You always say “I don’t do that much” but we truly couldn’t do this without you! All our many hands make light work and for that we say Thank you! As always, thank you all who participate and get the word out about our programs. Without your support we couldn’t do what we do. Thank You!
