The Latest News:

Starting on day one of restaurant closures in Illinois, we dedicated our efforts primarily towards serving/delivering donated meals to as many local Veterans, Seniors, and any other community members in need. To this point we are incredibly proud to have served more than 80,000 complimentary meals!  We expect meals to increase to each week as we add more “bulk meal deliveries” to Senior homes, Veteran communities, and first responders.

Please check out more info below, along with links to the media coverage our initiative has attracted and a link to our GoFund Me page.  Our initial plan was to entirely self fund this project, but with the increased attention came the need to serve tens of thousands more than anticipated.

Being able to extend our reach is a blessing, but of course comes with the call for additional funds.  The community stepped up and answered the call!  Because of this, we have been able to keep the initiative going even as the “shelter in place” order has been extended.  While Country House and its management continue to absorb most of the associated costs, all help is meaningful and has an impact:  Whether it’s through volunteering, sponsoring a specific organization to support/feed, a monetary donation, or via kind thoughts and prayers!!!

Any questions or if you are interested in supporting this initiative in any way, call us at the Country House Restaurant (708) 389-4618 or feel free to email anytime: Countryhouserestaurant@comcast.net

Thank you all for the continued, gracious, and inspiring support! 

We will be open for curb-side pick-up and delivery Monday-Friday from 10:30am-5:30pm. Please see our limited time menu below, which includes “Family Meal Deals” and other special offers.
