In an effort to help address the COVID-19 crisis as it impacts Evanston, the Rotary Club of Evanston continues to host its meetings online, rather than in-person, and will divert funds previously budgeted for its weekly lunches to support organizations that are helping ensure food security in Evanston.
So far, the club has donated funds to local restaurants cooking and delivering meals to the elderly, hospital workers and economically disadvantaged, including La Principal, Bagel Art Cafe, Curt's Cafe and NaKorn. Additional funding has been provided for Hillside Pantry to be utilized to purchase non-perishable foods.

The work of these organizations is vital locally, in providing meals to both health care workers and citizens in need as a result of COVID-19. For more information about our food insecurity efforts in Evanston, please visit our food insecurity pages
