 Although our Senior Center is closed Oak Lawn Senior Center staff are answering calls from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. to help assist seniors in need. 










This service is available for all eligible seniors from PLOWS Council on Aging. Qualified people, aged 60 years or over who are having difficulty preparing meals, unable to access groceries safely and/or have no other ways to receive nutritious meals, can receive a meal delivery.

Delivery procedures have been further refined for COVID-19 considerations. To cut the risk potential, drivers use hand sanitizer, wear gloves and take other precautions based on recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The meals are left outside the front door followed by a knock on the door or phone call. The driver returns to the vehicle and waits to see that the meals are picked up.
