In response to the coronavirus pandemic, Kane Senior Council is partnering with Kane County Judicial Center officials, the Kane County Sheriff’s Office and the Veterans Assistance Commission of Kane County to distribute meals to older adults and veterans during four upcoming drive-thru events at the Kane County Judicial Center in St. Charles.

Packs of frozen meals will be distributed to eligible seniors from the safety of a drive-thru car line at the Judicial Center, located at 37W777 IL Route 38, St. Charles.

The next event takes place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, July 17.

Kane County Veterans Assistance Superintendent Jake Zimmerman said the application for the use of the Judicial Center parking lot was enthusiastically endorsed by the Kane County Board’s Administration Committee.

Sheriff’s Office Detective Krysta Kaus, one of the organizers of the event, said she’s excited to work alongside the Kane Senior Council as well as officials from the Kane County Chief Judge’s Office and the Veterans Assistance Commission.

“The Sheriff’s Office is proud of this partnership and collaboration that will allow us to bring meals to older adults in Kane County,” she said.
