Today, over 150 neighborhood households came to CCO to “shop” through fresh fruits and vegetables, canned goods and boxed food items. Without the CCO Foodbag Program many people would struggle to pay rent and get the food they need each month.
The Greater Chicago Food Depository reports that many food insecure Chicagoans find themselves having to choose between prescription medication and food. Often choices have to be made that weaken the health or well being of persons in need. This is a special concern as we have observed more and more senior citizens in need of food help.
Your on-going support makes this program possible! Thank you!
