Neighbors Together feeds our neighbors AND supports local businesses.

Backed by Hyde Park Neighborhood Club (HPNC), Neighbors Together unites locally-led initiatives to send restaurant meals to frontline healthcare providers and food gift cards to families in need.

Help healthcare workers and Kenwood Academy families while supporting locally-owned restaurants and grocers.

HOW IT WORKS: Neighbors Together unifies the generosity and initiative of local individuals, restaurants and organizations to feed our community, starting with two projects:

  • The Kenwood Food Project has already collected and distributed over $1500 in restaurant gift cards to appreciative families identified by the Kenwood Academy Counseling staff. Each $50 gift card provides a full meal to one family. Sponsoring restaurants add $5-10 in donated funds to each card. Help spread the word – visit and ‘like’ the Kenwood Food Project Facebook page!
  • The Feeding Frontliners Project is a collaboration between Hyde Parkers, Kate Oakes and Susan Alitto, who envision feeding UChicago Medical Center frontline workers with meals from Hyde Park restaurants. Gifts will be pooled together and once a total of $1,500-2,500 is reached a meal will be purchased for a full shift of 150-250 frontline healthcare workers. Restaurant partners (see below) have agreed to provide meals at $10/person. Help spread the word – Visit and ‘like’ the Feeding Frontliners Facebook page!
  • HPNC’s support allows neighbors to pool resources to ensure that purchasing is done equitably across local businesses in quantities that make sense. All donations are 501(c)3 tax-deductible.

Thank you for caring and sharing. Your generosity makes our community stronger!
