Changes to Our Meal Service and Programs Due to Coronavirus

Due to COVID-19, Catholic Charities has suspended sit-down meals in their dining room at 721 N. LaSalle St., Chicago, IL 60654.

As a result, we will be serving our Wednesday hot meal on a to-go basis. This will entail our volunteers to individually package 130 hot meals in the kitchen at Catholic Charities and distribute them outside the front entrance. We will also provide an additional bagged meals for people who don’t receive the hot meal.

We are also suspending all CHI classes that have been held before and during the meals.

CHI is also bringing mobile meals through food trucks, bag meals and donations to sites around the City where the original meal has been suspended. Our goal is to keep bringing food to those in need and to provide additional food to allow individuals to stay in place and travel less in search of a meal.
