where food and social justice meet
Community Care highlights Chicago natives making a difference for those within their community through food.
The Community Care series follows two organizations combating a social justice issue to better their community. With seeing unemployment across the restaurant industry due to the pandemic and dealing with the hardships of homelessness, both organizations have a story to tell.
Their goal? To take care of their community and raise awareness for their cause.
