Care for Real Is Here to Help Federal Epmloyees
Care for Real is prepared to help anyone in need of food assistance, including federal workers who might be experiencing hardship due to the government shutdown. Furloughed employees should present a “legitimate authorities” ID to receive the groceries at 5339 N. Sheridan Rd., Chicago.
Care for Real is suspending the usual requirements for service (income below federal guidelines and geographic boundaries) to help those impacted by the goverment shutdown.
Families can receive grocery staples- meat, dairy, beans, rice, pasta, peanut butter, canned fruits and vegetables and lots more- once a month and can come up four times a week for fresh produce and bakery items.
Food is distributed Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9am to noon and Saturday from 9 am to 1pm.
