CNN celebrates Grundy Chamber membership

MORRIS – The Community Nutrition Network and Senior Services Association is celebrating 19 years serving Grundy County and the Grundy County Chamber of Commerce & Industry is proud to welcome them as a member.

“We are a nonprofit providing nutrition and socialization to older adults in our community,” Nutrition Director Patricia Strahan said in a news release. “We provide home-delivered meals to adults age 60 and above, and to their spouses, along with other meal options including restaurant meals, frozen meals for the week and more.”

CNN is also a part of the Meals on Wheels Foundation of Northern Illinois. In Grundy County they are located at 1700 Newton Place in Morris and are open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The Grundy County Chamber held a ribbon cutting ceremony on May 7 to celebrate CNN’s Chamber membership with the CNN team, Morris Mayor Chris Brown, Minooka Mayor Ric Offerman and numerous area business partners.

“CNN and its volunteers provide more than just meals for our senior community. They provide connection, friendship and joy through their services. We are so grateful for their dedication to our community,” Grundy Chamber President & CEO Christina Van Yperen said.

CNN has a team of four staff members, but as a local nonprofit, CNN is heavily volunteer based and they are in need of volunteers to help deliver meals and serving food at their lunch cafes in Morris, Minooka, Coal City and Mazon. To sign up to volunteer visit or call 815-941-1590.

“We hope to continue expanding our services to older adults in our community and promote socialization,” Strahan said.
