GLENWOOD, Ill. (September 28, 2020) – The Annual Fall Feast is a fundraising tradition for LARC, and it typically involves enjoying Glenwood Oaks food on the LARC campus on Wentworth Avenue in Lansing. But COVID is forcing some changes this year. Longtime supporter Glenwood Oaks Restaurant will still be providing food for the event, but it will be carry-out only.
Dinners will be available Thursday through Saturday, October 15, 16, and 17. Pick-up times are 3:00–6:00pm each of those days. Tickets for the meals can be ordered at www.larclansing.com through Wednesday, October 14, at 4:00pm.
Community members who choose to pre-order a meal will be supporting the programs that LARC provides for over 100 clients who learn to work, live, and participate in their community, while making accommodations for their intellectual and developmental disabilities. The menu options include these Glenwood Oaks classics:
- Half slab of Glenwood Oaks’ famous BBQ ribs—$15
- Four-piece honey-fried chicken dinner—$15
- Chiken-and-ribs combo—$18
- Chicken tenders—$7
- A newly-added meatloaf entrée—$14

All proceeds from the Annual Fall Feast Glenwood Oaks Carry-out support LARC programs such as job training and employment, daily life skills enrichment, senior programming, 24-hour residential services, and special recreation.
“These are very challenging times for everyone, including LARC” said Executive Director Ernie Gonzalez. He added, “Organizations like ours are challenged in finding ways to sustain our fundraising efforts amid concerns for public safety, and during a struggling economy.
“We appreciate all our friends in the community that continue to help support LARC and the amazing individuals we serve.”
