50 Years of Caring

Through locations in Edgewater and Rogers Park, Care for Real (CfR) provides food, clothing, referral, and additional services with compassion to improve the health and well-being of low-income residents to foster a stronger, healthier, equitable, and more stable community.

Neighbors Helping Neighbors

Care for Real relies on the support of more than 500 volunteers to help distribute food six days a week to thousands of neighbors facing food insecurity each year.

“Every time I’m at CfR, it’s easily the best part of my week.” – Care for Real Volunteer
