PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD)–A local restaurant and retirement community are brightening seniors’ days with catered meals.

Proctor Place Retirement Home and Slow Hand Craft BBQ have teamed up to bring lunches or dinners to Proctor Place residents. With seniors being a vulnerable population affected by COVID-19, this allows them to enjoy a nice lunch or dinner from the comfort and safety of their own apartment.
