Hillsboro Community Plans Drive-Thru Meal


Churches in the Hillsboro community are once again hosting the 29th annual community-wide Thanksgiving dinner, although it will look a little different this year due to the ongoing pandemic.

Sponsored by the Greater Hillsboro Ministerial Fellowship, traditional Thanksgiving meals will be given away on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, Nov. 26, at The Event Center of Montgomery County, located on Illinois Route 185 in Taylor Springs.

Food will be provided by Hillsboro area churches, and as always, the meals will be provided free of charge. However, this year, there will be no indoor dining. 

Drive-through and delivery service will be available from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. All volunteers will be screened for temperature checks, wear masks and gloves and will be following social distancing guidelines. Participants do not need to get out of their vehicles to get the meals.

Anyone in need of delivery service may call the Hillsboro United Methodist Church at 217-532-3734 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. prior to Thanksgiving Day. On Thanksgiving Day, call The Event Center of Montgomery County at 217-532-5194.
