Senior Feeding Program Emphasizing Nutrition

March is National Nutrition Month and a central Illinois non-profit is highlighting its work to offer seniors nutritious meals.


Shelly Tolly with OSF Peace Meal indicates in the most recent newsletter they send to their recipients, they were highlighting the importance of nutrition.



When seniors receive a Peace Meal delivered to their homes, they receive information about the importance of things like hydration. Tolly hopes it helps seniors because nutrition is so important as we age.



Peace Meal offers lunches to seniors via home-delivered meals for homebound seniors or congregate meals at sites across central Illinois.


There is a suggested donation of $3.50 per meal but Tolly hopes that won't deter seniors from seeking out a meal. Get more information by calling 309-665-5900.
