Please keep Inspiration Corp. in your thoughts and actions this month by donating a food item or two. Inspiration is looking for non-perishable food items such as meats, tuna, peanut butter, jelly, canned peas, corn, refried beans, boxes of Rice-A-Roni and other shelf-stable foods.
Per month, Inspiration Corporation currently has over 220 visits to their pantries at a cost of $16,000 per year to stock them through the Greater Chicago Food Depository – a 10% increase over last year due to rising food costs and increased demand.
The agency will be collecting items at their two social enterprise restaurants: Inspiration Kitchens – Garfield Park (3504 W. Lake St.) and Inspiration Kitchens – Uptown (4715 N. Sheridan) and giving guests a special treat for donating.
Inspiration Corporation welcomes drop-off donations at any site, and encourages Chicagoans to help by holding their own drives at their schools, office buildings or apartment buildings.
Those wishing to help can deliver food during business hours to 4715 N. Sheridan Road, 806 E. 64th Street, 3504 W. Lake Street, or 4554 N. Broadway. For additional information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 773-878-0981 x222."
