Feed the homeless


Under Type, please scroll down to “Social Action & Tzedakah Funds” and select “Feed the Homeless Fund.”



For nearly three decades NSCI’s Feed the Homeless program has helped to feed thousands of people around Chicago. We provide 1,000 hot meals and brown bag lunches monthly.



We deliver and serve to various locations in Lake and Cook Counties, including the Fourth Presbyterian Church, the Night Ministry, Connections for the Homeless in Evanston, snack packs to Ronald McDonald House at Lurie Children’s Hospital, and we recently added Fill a Heart 4 Kids. One group of NSCI volunteers prepares meals, and then a second group of volunteers picks up and delivers meals to the various locations.



Volunteer on one Sunday a month for hot food prep and brown bag lunches and/or make sandwiches one Wednesday a month (25 or more) at your home for delivery to the Night Ministry. For those interested in a larger mitzvah project, perhaps as part of a b’nei mitzvah celebration or other family simcha, you may sign up to make as many as the full 125! Families are welcome.



Contact coordinator David Rothschild to volunteer.

New! fill a heart 4 kids

We are thrilled to add Fill a Heart 4 Kids to the organizations we serve each month. Fill a Heart 4 Kids provides homeless, at risk, and foster children food, critical necessities, life skills, and educational support. Weekends are a critical time for children without access to food pantries, school meals, or a consistent place to sleep at night. We will be preparing 300 snack packs per month to ensure these children have food every weekend of the month. It costs $450 to fund 300 snack packs ($1.50 per bag of five snacks). Please consider contributing toward this monthly goal by donating to Feed the Homeless. Under Type, scroll down to “Social Action & Tzedakah Funds” and select “Feed the Homeless Fund.”
