Care For Real
Clients can come to Care for Real (CFR) once a month for staple food items…rice, beans, peanut butter, etc. Plus, they can come up to four times a week for the fresh produce and bread that is so generously donated by neighborhood groceries and bakeries. Yet the average CFR client “shops” for staples at the pantry just seven times a year. CFR is their safety net during especially hard times.
On average, CFR distributes nearly 60,000 pounds of food each month. We purchase most of our staple foods from the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Local retailers, bakeries, and shops, as well as 7-11, Aldi’s, Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s regularly donate produce and bakery goods.
The community supports CFR with individual donations and food drives sponsored by houses of worship, schools, businesses, block clubs, and residential buildings.
Purchased food is selected for variety, nutrition and with respect for religious beliefs and ethnic preferences.
For the homeless, CFR distributes specially packaged foods that do not require refrigerated storage, can openers or cooking. In addition, CFR provides special food baskets for Thanksgiving, Eid al-Fitr and Christmas to make those holidays brighter for our neighbors.
When available, we also provide children’s diapers and cleaning, personal-hygiene products as well as home health care items (canes, adult incontinence items, skin care, etc.) when they are available.
