About Our Collaborative

The communities on the south and west sides of  Chicago have long experienced systemic food insecurity and these issues have been amplified by the Covid-19 Pandemic. We are facing an unprecedented hunger crisis. ChiMeals is a collaboration of worker owned food businesses dedicated to addressing that food insecurity. Our collective of Black and Latinx worker cooperatives partner with mutual aid groups and community outreach organizations to provide free meals to people in need.


Providing food for the hungry is just the first step in combating systemic food insecurity and building towards long term health, wealth, and collective power in our neighborhoods. With your help, ChiMeals can combat the systemic food insecurity that has plagued our home for generations.
