About this Meal Train Plus page
Many restaurants and residents have been asking how they can help our staff who are taking care of patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. You can either make a donation or sign-up to help provide a meal or two. Please select a date and coordinate with any local food establishments for the delivery of the food directly to the Hospital. There are two times available - 11am and 7 pm for lunch and dinner. Please note which time you select.
We have approximately 1,000 employees working on weekdays and 300 on nights and weekends. We ask that your order be for at least 25 employees and we will rotate meals throughout the hospital so that everyone is appreciated.
No personal deliveries or home-cooked meals at this time please. Please be mindful that food MUST be packaged in individual servings to protect our staff. This information must be relayed to local restaurants upon ordering.
Due to visitor restrictions all deliveries must be picked up at the Employee Entrance (back of hospital) by a staff member. Delivery drivers should call the Foundation Office between 8 and 5 on weekdays to make arrangements for someone to meet them and accept the meals. Questions - contact the Silver Cross Foundation at 815-300-7105.
Your contributions are greatly appreciated. Please know we are here to care for your when you need us. Thank you!
