Welcome to the Chicago COVID-19 Food Forum (español abajo)

In order to provide support for Chicago’s food system during the COVID-19 outbreak, we developed this forum for collecting and cataloging food related responses, resources, actions, and discussions.

As we move forward in these conversations, we are centering racial equity for COVID19 response calls/actions/solutions. The responses that result from these calls are informed by voices of Chicago’s most vulnerable communities, specifically Black, Indigenous and People of Color.
