Help Fund the Online Market!

Nourishing Hope’s Online Market offers low-income Chicago residents the opportunity to order their groceries from a mobile device or computer and pick up at their convenience. This solution was the first of its kind in Chicago and offers increased access to both food and social services without sacrificing clients’ valuable time. The Online Market represents the next generation of hunger relief for hardworking people who don’t always have time to wait in line for food in a traditional pantry setting. Your donation today will help expand this important program!

“I first became interested in Nourishing Hope after I retired and was looking for a volunteering opportunity to give back to the community. During this time I saw firsthand the real need for this service. Unfortunately, arthritis and a bad back forced me to step back from the physical work, but I have been happy to continue with my financial support. Congratulations to Nourishing Hope on their 50 years of service!”
