The Barn serves as a second home for many of the area's seniors and disabled friends. The Village of Schaumburg's programs for seniors and disabled friends provide food, fun, and fellowship, as well as an opportunity for seniors to help their fellow seniors and their community.
Senior and disabled residents from the Village of Schaumburg, Hoffman Estates, and Schaumburg Township are welcome. In conjunction with the Community Nutrition Network the village offers the MEALS NOW program, which delivers nutritious meals to anyone (regardless of age) for $20 per week. There is no delivery charge. The participants of this service receive all five frozen meals once per week. In addition to the delicious meals, the program also provides an ideal environment for fellowship and fun.
Committed to good nutrition for the mind, body, and soul, the Barn offers nutritious, affordable meals (suggested donation $3-$3.25), fellowship through numerous special events, and educational programs enlightening seniors on current topics. Come and enjoy the welcoming atmosphere, delicious, nutritious food, and all that the Barn has to offer.
