Care For Friends

  • 10 people are interested

We have launched our newest initiative- Care Pack grocery deliveries!

For the past few months we have been packaging essential kitchen items (such as dairy products, grains, bread, protein, non-perishables, etc.) and delivering them to families facing food insecurity. We are looking for drivers to help us deliver the grocery boxes to our families in need.

Where do you come in? By getting good food to good people!
Each family receives 1-3 boxes, weighing 35-60lbs per box. We assemble the Care Packs with food. All you have to do is drive to our location, get the family's address, and fulfill the contactless delivery to their home.

Care Packs are distributed on the second Tuesday of each month. If you are looking for more opportunities to volunteer, you're welcome to join us earlier in the day and help assemble the boxes.

Valid driver's license and completed waiver required. Reach out to cffvco@gmail.com for more questions.

Mission Statement

Care for Friends provides easy access to community, food and overall wellness for Chicago’s most vulnerable and under-served people, in an atmosphere of dignity and respect. Through its programs, Care for Friends successfully connects people with community resources to enable them to achieve a better quality of life.

Description

Our flagship program is "Food for Friends" - where we create a safe space for anyone requiring a meal to gather in community for a no-cost hot lunch served in sit-down, family style with dignity and respect.

Other services are available during this gathering time, including haircuts, a health clinic, clothes closet, and toiletries distribution. Additionally, representatives from our various partner organizations begin to make connections with our guests - establishing trusting relationships that will ultimately allow our guests to connect with the services they need to achieve a better quality of life.
