Grundy County News October 2017
We have funding to grow our Home Delivered Meal program. We are looking for new participants! If you are a senior 60 or above and home bound, we can 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.
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 will be adding additional events including an Open House in the coming months so look our announcements!
Our next Monthly party at Saratoga Towers is Friday, October 27th with our Halloween Party Lunch! This meal will consist of: Chicken or Tuna Salad on a Bun, Potato Salad, Baked Beans, and Fruit, Dessert and Milk or coffee for a suggested donation of $4. Lunch is served at 11:30AM but come early in your festive Halloween attire for special tricks and treats! Reservations requested so please call 815-941-1590 to RSVP. 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 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.
To our volunteers and Community Partners –Thank You! As always, thank you all who volunteer and participate. Without your support we couldn’t do what we do. Thank You!
