As schools and other care center close during the COVID-19 outbreak, many children will lose a consistent source of healthy meals. Lurie Children’s operates a unique food pantry program at a pediatric outpatient clinic for families that are food insecure. Families are provided healthy non-perishable food items monthly, for three months. They are also referred to community-based services to help them find more sustainable, long-term access to healthy food.
This gift can provide healthy groceries for one family for a month.
