How to Support Local During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Delivery, Curbside, and Drive-thru Service.

  • The ordered close of all bars and restaurants to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus may leave you feeling defeated in how you can support your favorite local spots. Check out this directory for all your options!
  • Fresh bread and baked goods are available at Wildflour Artisan Bakery & Cafe and Sunrise Bakery.

Children Activities

  • Giggles has a deal of the day available for curbside pickup and cookie decorating kits to grab.
  • The Children's Museum of Illinois just launched their Home Fun For Everyone program that features a daily craft or activity Monday - Friday.
  • Let's Paint with Liz and Whimsical Brush Creations are offering Take-n-Make kits! Grab one for you and the kids and set aside an afternoon to get crafty.
  • If you've got young readers at home then be sure to tune into The Decatur Public Library's Facebook page Monday - Friday. They are offering a 7 o'clock story time before bed!
