Housing Forward Summer Lunch Program
Housing Forward's Support Center in Maywood is open Monday through Friday during daytime hours. In the Support Center, clients are able to address basic care needs such as showers and laundry, receive mail and search for jobs. Case Management services are also provided to help start the process of moving clients' focus from survival to self-sufficiency. Oftentimes, this can be difficult when operating on an empty stomach.
Housing Forward is in need of individuals to donate a week's worth of mostly non-perishable lunch supplies to support those that access our services during the summer months.
Lunch providers are responsible for the purchase of a week's supply of food items to support 40 guests. Please drop off food supplies to our Support Center located at 1851 S. 9th Ave, Maywood. Lunch supplies should be dropped off on Monday mornings between 7:30am - 8:00am or 3:00pm - 3:30pm. If alternate times on Monday are needed, please schedule in advance by calling the number below.
Example Lunch Supplies to Purchase:
40 Tuna/chicken salad snack packs - 6 loaves of bread – peanut butter (3 large containers) – jelly (3 large containers) – 6 packaged lunch meat (no deli style) – 5 packaged cheese - mayonnaise (3 large containers) – drinks (soda, water, or juice boxes) - snacks (chips, cookies, power/granola bars, fruit snacks).
We appreciate if all drinks and snacks are individually packaged, and food items are enough to feed 40 guests.
For additional questions, please contact Volunteer & Community Outreach Manager, Enid Johnson via email at [email protected] or by phone at 708.338.1724 ext 220.
Thank you in advance for your generosity.
