The Illinois Valley Center for Independent Living administrates the Mobile Meals program and delivers to community members with routes in LaSalle, Peru and Oglesby.

Two meals are delivered to the home each weekday, one cold and one hot. We do not deliver on weekends or on holidays.

The program has been serving residents of La Salle, Peru and Oglesby since the early 1960s when a group of women affiliated with then-People's Hospital saw a need for it. The program serves 55 people on four routes. There are no restrictions to apply except that you must live in LaSalle, Peru and Oglesby. The cost is $4.00 per day.

Meals are prepared at Illinois Valley Community Hospital and delivered on weekdays; 60 volunteers alternate delivery duty.

To sign up for meals delivered to your home,  Terri Sparling can be reached  at IVCIL by calling 815-224-3406.

IVCIL is looking for delivery drivers who can volunteer an hour twice a month. If interested, contact Brian Szuda, IVCIL's Associate Director at 815-224-3126.
