Meals for the Selfhelp Home

Chicago, IL

Story

STORY: The Selfhelp Home team is working tirelessly to keep residents safe, now it is our turn to keep them safe. Let's give back and help fuel them with meals at this critical time. This is also a chance to support our local restaurants and delivery drivers. STAY HOME AND HEALTHY, thus no home cooked meals please. Food must come from restaurants only and must be individually wrapped and sealed—no large tin family-style pans. Pizza is the only exception. For your safety, please deliver the food to the main entrance of the facility listed below. Food will be distributed on a rotating schedule to include each department, floor and shift. 1) Select date of your choice by clicking "claim" to commit to sponsoring a meal time slot. 2) QUANTITY Meal (lunch) shifts are for 30 PEOPLE (but it doesn’t have to be 30! Any amount will help). 3) You pick any local restaurant of your choice to place your order and utilize either their delivery service or Grub Hub/Uber Eats/Door Dash. NO PERSONAL DELIVERIES please 4) In your claimed spot please specify where the delivery will be from and a brief description of what is ordered - this is very helpful for the facility, so they know what to expect. 5) Make sure to indicate to the restaurant or delivery service that delivery must be made at the specified time, to the specified location detailed below in special notes, and in compliance with all the guidelines listed herein. We understand that during this uncertain time this is a substantial financial ask so we hope that people create small groups to help spread the cost. Also, please keep your receipts and check with your accountants to find out if you can utilize this as a tax deductible donation. We are doing our part by staying home, but this is one small thing we can do as a community to mobilize behind those that must go to work to help our communities! Thank you so much for contributing during this difficult time and please visit our Facebook Page "GiveInKind Meals for Chicago Area COVID-19 Healthcare Workers." DROP OFF INFORMATION: ***DUE TO DELIVERIES BEING UNABLE TO GO INSIDE, please ask the driver to park right out front of The Selfhelp Home main entrance located at: 908 W. Argyle St., Chicago, IL 60640 Please call (773) 271-0300 to let them know their meal has arrived! Please understand as the situation continues to evolve, hospitals and facilities will be regularly updating their policies, delivery instructions and time slots.
