Our Grant A Wish Food Program has been operational for over 17 years, giving away bags and boxes of food to hungry Chicagoan’s. Our give away’s consist of meat, fresh fruit & vegetables, assortment of bread and an assortment of dry & can goods. Our food program is 85% of the time open on Saturday mornings opening the door at 10:00 am and closing the door at 12 noon, we close periodically because we have run out of food or closing for holidays and other reasons. We operate a Federal Emergency Food Program and our food program operates on a first come first serve or until the food runs out, we have been making an effort over the years to make a difference battling the issues facing hunger in our communities. We believe one of the greatest thing in life you can do is to help feed someone who may be hungry.
