Catholic Charities recipient from Chi-Town Jazz Festival

Since our beginning the Chi-Town Jazz Festival has maintained the closest relationship with Catholic Charities. Catholic Charities believes that access to adequate, affordable and nutritious food is a basic human right. Freedom from hunger is a prerequisite for individuals and families to live productive, healthy and dignified lives. Read more about what they do here.

So, who do we help? Where does the money go? Here’s a food pantry we work with on Chicago’s south side.Piano Hand for Chi-Town Jazz FestivalThe Hyde Park Kenwood Food Pantry gives out groceries including fresh produce every Saturday from 10 AM to 1 PM at the Hyde Park Union Church, 5600 S. Woodlawn Ave.  A case manager is also available, and the pantry also gives away clothing and personal hygiene items as available. Serving the community since 1981, this Food Pantry is  part of the Hyde Park Kenwood Hunger Programs, a
501(c)3 organization with Hyde Park Union Church as the fiscal agent. They serve around five hundred individuals per month; roughly one third of our recipients are age 18 or younger, and nearly the same number are age 60 and above.

Jazz Supports Hunger Relief - 1 at the Chi-Town Jazz Festival

Chi-Town Jazz Festival has supported hunger relief in the Chicagoland area for almost 8 years. We ask many of the city’s great jazz musicians to donate their talents to perform in several venues during a week in March. We ask the venues to offer their stages and donate their entrance fees. And we solicit donations and Sponsoring support from both music lovers and all those individuals and companies who want to give back to the community by addressing  “food  insecurity,” which means helping  those who have little or no sources of food for themselves or their families. So, who do we help? Where does the money go? In this and the next few posts we’ll tell you.
