Care for Real 2021 Annual Report

We are excited to share our fiscal year  2021 Annual Report with you. As you will see, we have been busy navigating the increased need for food assistance and expanding operations to meet this growing need in the community. After launching the Rogers Park pantry and drive-thru pantry, Care for Real now distributes food six days a week. To ensure homebound neighbors have access to fresh and nutritious food, we launched a home delivery program. Expanded programming helped us face a 143% increase in first-time visits and serve over 30,000 households in the last fiscal year. More recently, CfR experienced a 76% increase in pantry visits and just this week, the Rogers Park pantry served 154 households in two hours. Thank you for your continued volunteer support to help us feed more neighbors in need!
