Peace Meal Starting To Resume Normal Services

If before COVID you relied on Peace Meal, the organization is starting to return to its normal services in much of the area.

 

The service was taken over by OSF and Peace Meal Coordinator Shelly Tolly told Regional Radio on the WHOW Morning Show Tuesday reminds Peace Meal provides those in our communities ages 60 and up with a healthy meal around lunchtime. 

 

 

Tolly reminds Peace Meal offers both a home-delivered meal for those with limitations and they are beginning to bring back the congregate sites for those that were coming out for those meals.

 

 

For those that receive a home delivered meal, there does need to be a limitation that would prevent a senior from attending a congregate meal.

 

 

For those that can afford it, a meal is $3.50. Tolly emphasizes if you cannot afford it, they are not going to turn you away. She says if you can make any sort of donation, that is appreciated, otherwise, they will cover your cost.

 

She also points out anyone who has the means to pay for a meal is not taking away from someone in need of a meal. She notes the agency's goal is to grow the number of meals they serve next year.

 

To get more information on Peace Meal or get signed up for the program, you can call 309-665-5900 or 833-923-3905.
