In a continued effort to support the needs of older adults living within Ela Township, and in compliance with current social distancing guidelines, the Ela 55+ staff has implemented an affordable curbside meal pick up option for Ela 55+ members who would usually enjoy having meals at the Ela Eatery located at the Ela Township Community Center.  The community center chef, Lynn Garrett, has developed a variety of delicious meals that can be enjoyed by members for only $5 a person!  Meals include a main entrée, side dishes, and dessert! All orders must be received by Friday prior to the week of pick up. Please call (847) 438-9160 to place your order. Curbside service is available Monday through Thursday at 11:30 a.m., in the front parking lot of the Ela Township Community Center located at 380 Surryse Road in Lake Zurich.

55+ members can view the monthly menu selections on the Ela Township 55+ Facebook page, or on our website at  All meals are handed out cold with reheating instructions listed on the container. Please have exact cash or check made payable to Ela Township 55+ ready in an envelope when you arrive to pick up your order.  If you are interested in becoming a member of Ela 55+ please contact the Ela Township Community Center.  Membership is free to all Ela Township residents 55 and older.
