This week: Grocery drop-off and pick-up

All this week, we're hosting a grocery drop-off and pick-up with our friends in Brave Space Alliance at our office at 3248 W Montrose.

We have boxed and canned goods, toiletries and hygiene items, diapers and baby and infant care products, juice and bottled water, snacks, and prepared lunches. Groceries are free to those who need them.

The office is open Monday through Friday from noon to 5 pm.

We can also use volunteers; if you're able to help, please sign up with a note that you're interested in helping with food distribution!
