Home Newsroom 348. March for Meals to Feed Seniors in Barrington

I occasionally volunteer to deliver meals to seniors in Barrington. And I’ve learned that the Meals on Wheels program is the quickest pick-me-up around. If you want to see how something as simple as delivering lunch can make a big difference in lives around us, you might want to check out the Barrington Area Council on Aging’s Meals on Wheels program. You are guaranteed smiles!  In fact, there are several ways you can help feed local seniors this month. And all you have to do is dine at specific restaurants on select Tuesdays.

The Barrington Area Council on Aging is taking part in “March for Meals”, a month-long campaign during March, sponsored by the Meals on Wheels Association of America. If you dine at specific Barrington restaurants on Tuesdays this month, they’ll make a donation to BACOA’s meals programs.

The participating restaurant this week, on Tuesday March 15th, is Cooper’s Pizza at 117 S. Hough Street. The participating restaurant for Tuesday, March 29th, is McGonigal’s Pub at 105 S. Cook Street in Barrington. All you have to do is print the Cooper’s and McGonigal’s coupons which you’ll find by clicking HERE, present them with your purchase and both restaurants will make donations to the Barrington Area Council on Aging for each coupon received. You’ll find Cooper’s menu at CoopersPizza.com and you’ll find McGonigal’s menu at McGonigalsPub.com.  Tropical Smoothie Cafe and Wool Street Grill and Sports Bar also participated in this campaign earlier this month.

BACOA has administered the Meals with Wheels program since 1998. In 2010, volunteers from local churches and organizations delivered more than 3,400 meals, and provided a well-being check, to seniors who were unable to grocery shop or prepare meals.

BACOA’s Senior Lunch and Activity Program provides a chance for seniors to visit over a meal, as well as play bingo, listen to music or hear an educational presentation. Changes in the program over the last year include a new caterer—Hoffman House of Rockford—and the addition of Wii bowling and board games twice a month.

If you would like to receive Meals with Wheels or attend the Senior Lunch and Activity Program, please call BACOA at (847) 381-5030. If you would like to make a donation, click HERE or if you want to roll up your sleeves and volunteer for BACOA’s meals programs, click HERE.

The Barrington Area Council on Aging, Inc. is a private, not-for-profit organization. Its mission is to serve seniors, family caregivers and the community. For more information, visit their website at BACOA.org.

European Starling enjoying the heated birdbath. Starlings are a non-native, invasive species; they are aggressive and displace native species from nest holes. Still, they’re kind of pretty. The heated birdbath remains unfrozen in cold weather and attracts many species of birds. #europeanstarling #starling #starlingsofinstagram #nonnative #invasivespecies #heatedbirdbath #backyardbirds #backyardbirding #birding #birdingphotography #birdphotography #nikonbirds #citizensforconservation #365barrington ...
