Senior Breakfast Club at Lorraine Hansberry Senior Apartments

Cook up some fun with a friendly group of seniors! Help prepare and serve a hearty breakfast to low-income residents and then join them in spirited rounds of Bingo. By bringing these seniors together to eat and interact socially, you will help them build community and not feel isolated. You’ll also provide a warm meal in a community that is considered a “food desert,” in which other nutritious options aren’t always available.
  • Easy El access: Green Line
