Christmas In August!


Dear Chicago Food Community,

As of June 13 and July 5th, we successfully fed 1,100 families. With the support of our local and national community, Sip & Savor Coffee House, Hope For The Day, Sip of Hope Coffee Bar, Restaurant Depot and our friends at Mariano’s, we were able to reach about 5,000 individuals in south side Chicago. We are now committed to gifting 10,000 families with a week’s worth of groceries and a year worth of resources. It’ll be Christmas in August as we’re gifting families with beautiful gift boxes. We aren’t feeding the needy, we’re feeding the eager. People are eager to get back to some sense of normalcy. Each box is valued at $40 and filled with essential food items.

What's Included In The Box

4 Cans of Tuna Per Family, 1 Box of Ritz or Saltine Crackers Per Family, I Bag of Brown or White Rice Per Family, 1 Bag of Dried Beans Per Family, 3-4 Bell Peppers Per Family, Two Yellow Onions Per Family, 6 Oranges, Apples & Lemons Per Family, 8 Sweet Or White Potatoes Per Family, Instant Coffee w/  Dry Creamer, Box of Tea, Instant Oatmeal, Surgical Masks, Quick Meal Recipes, Job & Therapy Resources, Budget Education Info, Housing and Renters Rights and A Personalize Encouragement Letter.
