Country House Community Feeding Initiative
Starting on day one of the 2020 pandemic-related restaurant closures in Illinois, we dedicated our efforts primarily towards serving/delivering donated meals to as many local Veterans, Seniors, and any other community members in need. We have kept this initiative going and made it a permanent part of the business as it is in line with our overall philosophy.
To this point, we are incredibly proud to have served more than 250,000 complimentary meals!
Please check out more info below, along with links to the media coverage our initiative has attracted. Our initial plan was to entirely self-manage this project, but with increased attention came the need to serve tens of thousands more meals than anticipated. The community stepped up and answered the call. It became a heartwarming example of a true team effort during a time when society can use as much of this approach as possible.
If you have any questions or if you are interested in supporting this initiative in any way, call us at the Country House Restaurant (708) 389-4618 or feel free to email us anytime: Countryhouserestaurant@comcast.net.
While Country House and its management happily continue to absorb most of the associated costs and labor, all help is meaningful and has an impact: Whether it’s through volunteering, sponsoring a specific organization to support/feed, or via kind thoughts. Thank you all for the continued gracious and inspiring support!
