Listen to Michele Zurakowski’s interview with Jenn White—her update on the state of Beyond Hunger and some of the partnerships that are helping us meet the increased need, especially for our vulnerable seniors.
CAN DO Community Challenge is a local hunger relief campaign sponsored by Beyond Hunger. It is designed to heighten awareness about local food insecurity and encourages schools, organizations, and individuals to become more involved with Beyond Hunger.
As job and work losses mount amidst the COVID-19 outbreak, our neighbors are letting us know they are scared. People need emergency support to put food on their table. And they have increasing anxiety that their resource for groceries may close.
We have adjusted the way we operate our food pantry for the time-being to follow the recommendation of the CDC and the Chicago Board of Health. We are still open. We will be distributing groceries outside to avoid the risk of spreading coronavirus.
