Dine Around Town – 60+ At Morris Chop Shop

Grundy County residents over age 60, their spouses, and caregivers are invited to enjoy special low-cost meals up to three times a week at the Morris Chop Shop, with the new “Dine Around Town” program. “Dine Around Town” is a partnership of the Morris Chop Shop with the Community Nutrition Network and Senior Services Association (CNNSSA). The Morris Chop Shop owners Jackie Clisham and Tim Berner will offer seven Chop Shop favorite meals, adapted to meet nutritional requirements for older adults. This special menu will be offered beginning Wednesday, January 4, 2023.

Community Nutrition Network will be open to register clients for monthly meals on pre-loaded payment cards, on Tuesday, January 3, 2023, from 8:00 to 11:00 a.m., at our office on the first floor of Saratoga Towers, 1700 Newton Pl., Morris. Those interested may also call Community Nutrtion Network and Senior Services Association at 815-941-1590 from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. during the week for more information. The suggested donation is $6.00 per meal. CNNSSA is a donation-based nonprofit serving those age 60 or above, their spouses, and their caregivers. No one is ever turned away if unable or unwilling to pay.

The Dine Around Town dinner menu will include delicious favorites, such as the Chop Shop mac-’n’-cheese, a tender filet with caramelized onions, mushrooms, aged cheddar, and smoked Gouda creamy pasta. The fettuccine and meatballs includes house-made meatballs, sauteed with garlic and red onions, in a demi-cream sauce or marinara with fettuccine and shaved Parmesan, with garlic French bread. Steakhouse Stroganoff and chimichurri steak will also be on the menu, along with lighter options such as the Chop Shop Cobb salad, a Caesar salad, and a roasted beet salad.  The menu will be offered on Wednesdays (4-8 p.m.), Thursdays (4-9 p.m.), and Sundays (3-8 p.m.), during the Morris Chop Shop’s regular hours. Customers are welcome to dine in or take out. All meals meet U.S. federal standards for nutrition for older adults, and the menu has been reviewed and approved by a licensed dietitian with AgeGuide, the state area agency on aging.
