To our shared community:

In response to the unprecedented and necessary effects and restrictions of the CoronaVirus on us all, Country House would like to share our efforts and plans to continue to serve our great community through this time!

We are very strong because of our community and we would like to update you on our plans during this time:

Beginning Tuesday, March 17th we will be offering free meals and deliveries to as many seniors in need who are unable to either get out or are having financial difficulties. Please give us a call to discuss at 708-389-4618 if you or someone you know is in need!

Also, because soup is nutritious and comforting to anyone with flu-like symptoms, we will be giving at no cost a quart of our homemade soup to all customers who want to stop in and pickup a quart!

We will be open for carry out and delivery of a majority of our menu on a daily basis. Also will have a selection of “family of 4” meals for $25. A great value!.. Our hours will be 10:30-6pm daily. Please see the details of those menus below.

The Country House Family has always been grateful for the strength we have shared with our community (Families, Friends, Schools, & Churches). In these times, we all see how valuable it is to support and help each other! We have always been grateful for our community and have always made it a priority to be there to strengthen and help in any way possible!

DONATE TODAY FOR THOSE IN NEED

We are raising money to continue to serve our community at the highest level!  In our first day we are proud to say that we sent over 200 meals to the seniors, families and kids needing a hot meal.  We want to keep our employees active, and help them feed their families.

SCHOOL FOODSERVICE

With today’s emphasis on unhealthy eating habits, obesity, and the long-term effects of early childhood and adolescent nutrition, we sought to make a difference. We found that by using fresh ingredients and little or no foods that are processed or pre-packaged, we are able to control our costs and offer these higher quality foods at lower prices.
