Summer food service program

Location: 201 E 95th St, Chicago, IL 60628, USA
The flyer below was handed out at last night's Roseland Heights meeting.

Free meals for youths 18 years and under sponsored by Catholic Charities at Wesley United Methodist Church located at 201 E. 95th Street - phone (773) 821-6240.

The meals will occur at two different times namely for breakfast and lunch starting June 27th until September 2nd. The first meal occurs between 10 AM to 11 PM and the second meals at 12 Noon to 2 PM. There is no carry out and all food must be consumed at the distribution site. This is Monday through Friday.

BTW, at the meeting a Rosemoor resident mentioned that a free meals program is to be held at St. John de La Salle Church located at 10205 S. Martin Luther King Dr. If you want to inquire about if they have a free meals program this summer you may want to call them @ (773) 785-2022.

    A few years ago I went through the state's listing of summer food sites to create flyers for west side communities. They are listed by county, and if you click the name (sponsor) there may be a larger list of sites within it-- locations the sponsor is responsible for. Open means anyone can come for the meals, enrolled means you have to be registered in whatever program that site may be offering, ie. the Park District offers enrolled meals for day camp kids.

    In 2008 an ordinance was passed that all CPS schools open for summer school must serve all kids in the community. CPS doesn't promote this very well, but if you know your neighborhood school is open for the summer, your kids have a right to the meals there.

    The City and CHA will have lists of summer food sites on their websites soon. Also, you can call the Illinois Hunger Hotline, M-F, 9-5 at 1-800-359-2163
