Caring for our Community

COVID-19 Precautions

The health, safety, and well-being of our Nourishing Hope community is top of mind as we look forward our events, so we will continue to inform our decision making concerning in-person aspects with city, state, and CDC guidelines.

Mask wearing is welcome at all Nourishing Hope events, but is not a requirement. 

“Even before the pandemic, 1 in 7 Chicagoans struggled to consistently afford nutritious food — a tragic reality affecting the health and livelihood of generations to come. The pandemic and its economic impact have only deepened the disparities, highlighting the difficulties of gaining access to needed mental health counseling and social services. At Nourishing Hope, we’re committed to serving our Chicago neighbors and helping them to build a more promising future.”

Casey Herman, Board member and past board president

Nourishing Hope Exists Because of the Support of Our Neighbors.

With multiple food distribution programs that deliver the equivalent of 4 million meals each year, plus thousands of social service visits that empower healthy lives, Nourishing Hope strives to build a brighter future for all Chicagoans. Join us today!
