Areas of Focus: Water, sanitation and hygiene, Community economic development
Summary: Multiple food, pantry and hygiene items provided to local food pantries for the food insecure in Chicago, IL.
Given the current environment brought on by COVID-19, food pantries and local food distribution partners are in need of food and water, as well as hygienic products. Our goal is to engage our club members to shop and source the items the partners need and deliver them to the food pantries.
We would like to help two partners, Night Ministry and Common Pantry, but will reassess their needs and other local pantries to best serve the community.
Since a few of these were beneficiaries of the Disaster Response Grant, we would like to wait several months to replenish their goods. We will complete the project by May 2021.
This project is "Paid". This means that the funds from the district have been issued. This project is now being ready for implementation. When this is done, a report needs to be uploaded on the project page and the "Reported" button needs to be clicked, then the status of the project will be changed to "Reported".
Project listed for the 2020-21 Rotary Year.
