BGCC Participates in #FeedItForward
Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago has been working with the families of our Club members to connect them with essential resources during this challenging time. Thanks to a grant from long-time BGCC partner, the Lavin Family Foundation, Clubs are providing critically needed meals to vulnerable families through partnerships with independent, locally-owned restaurants. #FeedItForward, an innovative initiative launched by the Lavin Family Foundation, seeks to keep small restaurants alive and people employed while helping to feed people in communities across Chicago and its suburbs who are in crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Lavin Family Foundation is supporting over 30 charities, including Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago, in this food forward initiative, which is planned to assist with meal provisions over the next 4-6 weeks. Restaurants participating in partnership with BGCC include:
- Fabulous Freddies in Bridgeport
- The Grill Catering & Delivery in East Garfield Park
- Stevos Grill and 90 Mile Café in Lakeview
- El Faro, El Milagro and Nuevo Leon in Little Village
- Tony’s Original Philly Steaks on the South Side
- Gigio’s Pizzeria in Uptown
