A 501(C)(3) organization, Fight2Feed’s mission is to make a difference by changing the rise of food insecure communities by fighting hunger one block at a time.

Fight2Feed combines donated restaurant resources with the mobility of food trucks and volunteer driven cars to delivery food to where food is needed the most in our city. Our organization is 100% volunteer run and supported. We have served over 55,000 meals to people in need in the last 3 years, and have rescued thousands of pounds of surplus food in 2017 from restaurants and other events to be redistributed to hungry citizens in need.
Cornerstone Community Outreach was founded in 1989 to address the rising problem of homelessness in Chicago’s uptown neighborhood. They currently operate three separate shelters, and within them they are able to house men, women, families, single fathers with children, and adolescent boys. In addition to these shelters, they also run a low-income senior resident apartment complex, a soup kitchen, after-school programming, and much more. They serve over 2,000 people each year.
This is a recurring monthly scheduled event.
Sunday is free parking on the meters near the shelter, plus side streets has free residential parking, please check for permit restricted zones.
