Chicago q Continues Efforts To Feed Homeless Affected By Shelter Closures Due To COVID-19

The COVID-19 crisis has had a profound impact on the global economy and has left individuals and businesses struggling to respond. Amid this new reality, many homeless shelters have been temporarily shut down or had to modify their services, leaving those in need without access to necessities.

For the second weekend in a row, Chicago q will be providing free hot meals to the homeless, hungry and healthcare workers who are working so hard to keep our city healthy.  “Before the quarantine, the homeless had a place to go each day of the week to receive a warm meal. However, with many of the shelters now closed, there are many days where they have nowhere to go.” states Fred Latsko, real estate developer & owner of Chicago q.  “We are hoping to pick these days up until the crisis is over and the shelters reopen.”

Additionally, the Chicago q team wants to do what it can to thank and support healthcare workers on the front lines fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.  Hospital staff, paramedics and others are invited to pick up a complementary hot meal from Chicago q this Saturday as well.

Meals will consist of the following:

Saturday, April 25th

4:00pm – 6:00pm

Pulled Pork Sandwich

Side of Coleslaw

Carrot Cake Muffin

Bottled Water

Sunday, April 26th

4:00pm – 6:00pm

Fried Chicken Sandwich
