Work on Neighbor Grocery is underway

We’re providing store equipment and technical assistance to Neighbor Capital for a new store in North Lawndale, scheduled to open this year. Louis’ Groceries and Neighbor Capital are partnering to develop a new business model for fresh food retail in a food desert, drawing on lessons learned from Louis’ pilot store. We moved our shelving and equipment to the new store space in January. Meanwhile, Neighbor Capital is finalizing its renovation.

Help us provide affordable fruits and veggies to Chicago children in need!

CHECC kids

The Fruits and Veggies for Kids program revolutionizes access to fresh fruits and vegetables for children in low-income areas of Chicago. Once a week, we deliver baskets with $10 worth of fresh fruits and vegetables to parents of preschool- and elementary-aged children who lack access to healthy food.

We have already raised funding to cover overhead and delivery costs. Now we are looking to Chicago-area residents like you to help make the fresh produce baskets more affordable for families.

Will you do your part to improve nutrition for Chicago children in need?
