We held another signature ZF Volunteer Day on January 26, 2018, this time in partnership with The Mecca Center. Volunteers packed and delivered lunches for Chicago’s needy, homeless and elderly. A whopping 300 young volunteers from The Mecca MVMT youth group packed 500 lunches with 14 food items, from turkey and cheese sandwiches, to apples, chips, cookies, and water in a snappy 20 minutes.
The next morning, staff and volunteers headed out and put the lunch bags in the hands of hungry homeless on Chicago’s South Side, and low-income elderly residents at the historic Rosenwald Court Apartments in the Bronzeville neighborhood.
