Service Plus: Food Insecurity

Service Plus is a program model Chicago Cares is piloting that pairs education about the fundamentals of an issue or geographic area with impactful related service for a group of committed volunteers over multiple sessions.

For this Service Plus program, we'll provide a deeper dive on food insecurity and ways to address it through civic engagement. This program will feature a total of four sessions in which volunteers will learn the local scope and underlying causes of food insecurity, get an overview of organizations that are working on solutions, and receive a customized recommendation on how they can turn their knowledge into action:

    Session I (Education and Service): Hunger Relief
    Saturday, December 1, 9am to 1pm

    Session II (Education): The Issues
    Thursday, December 13, 6:30pm to 8:30pm

    Session III (Education and Service): The Solutions
    Saturday, January 5, 9am to 1pm

    Session VI (Education): Knowledge Into Action
    Thursday, January 17, 6:30pm to 8:30pm

As this Service Plus program is a new model Chicago Cares is testing, we are seeking flexible but committed volunteers:

  • Volunteers are expected to complete the entirety of all sessions, but doing so the first session and at least two other sessions is mandatory to be considered for the program.
  • Participation, feedback, and evaluation per session are required.
  • Session locations are being finalized, but all will be in the city of Chicago.
  • Transportation is not provided, but carpooling or other resources may be possible.
  • Refreshments and session materials will be provided.
