Home-delivered meals are available to individuals who meet eligibility requirements of a physical, emotional or psychological need for meal assistance.

Peace Meal is partially funded through Older Americans Act and State of Illinois General Revenue funds. No one is ever refused meals or services due to an inability to donate.
