The Workshop
Community Meals Program

How Does the Program Work?

Anyone with a Galena zip code is eligible to receive meals during our pilot program. We hope to expand to all of Jo Daviess County in the future.

  •  Meals are $5.00 with free delivery, meals will be prepaid before delivery.

  • Gift certificates available!

  • Meals will be delivered between 11:00am – 1:00pm Monday through Friday when The Workshop is open (please see list below of days we are closed). 

  • Meals will be prepared daily by our chef who holds a National Food Managers Certification in our commercial kitchen. 

  • Proper Personal Protective Equipment will be worn when cooking and delivering meals.

  • Menus are prepared in advance by The Workshop Community Meals Staff who follow guidelines from Illinois Department on Aging Child and Adult Care Program.

  • Once meals are prepared The Workshop Community Meals trained staff will load the meals into our insulated food pan carriers and will be delivered in our Workshop vehicle.

  

  • We have four different ways we can deliver your meals so that we can maintain social distancing: 

  1. Meal left in cooler outside your front door. If you choose to have your meal left in a cooler the cooler must be supplied by you.

  2. Courtesy phone call before meal is delivered then meal left by your front door.

  3. We will ring the doorbell/knock and leave the meal by your front door. 

  4. Curbside pickup at The Workshop, 706 S. West St. between 11am to 1pm.
