Addressing Food Insecurities
We’re thrilled to continue our partnerships with Native Tongue Magazine, a free food magazine that promotes food literacy through tailored recipes, cooking techniques, and educational content. This past fall, they contributed free bags of groceries with recipe cards to families at two KIPP Chicago events, one on September 5th and another on October 21st. They also led a Wellness Wednesday Workshop for teachers, demonstrating a 15 minute, family friendly meal with lots of advice to get kids involved in the process!
December 21st Rush food giveaway
On the first day of Winter Break, we partnered Rush Hospital’s Office of Community Health Equity and Engagement to host a Holiday food giveaway at the KIPP Academy campus. 200 boxes were filled with fresh and shelf-stable foods for families to safely pick up.
