  1. “All donations will go to the food pantries at 2121 Dewey and Hilda’s Place located at 1458 Chicago Avenue…”

    Both food pantries are operated by Connections for the Homeless…

    “Interestingly” a month ago, per the report below, Connections signed a “Good Neighbor Agreement”, with Mayor Biss in attendance, at the luxe LeTour restaurant in downtown Evanston. For the apparent money spent for this “celebration”, quite a few vittles could be provided for the needy who patronize both food pantries. As a former Connections for the Homeless employee, I know that both pantries are *very* heavily utilized, especially by families with young kids and seniors; quite often the pantries can get pretty bare before the next weekly donations from the Chicago Food Depository and other kind donors…

    “After five in-person meetings, seven drafts and four months of work, Mayor Daniel Biss and Connections for the Homeless Chief Executive Officer Betty Bogg signed the final Good Neighbor Agreement for the Margarita Inn homeless shelter during a celebration at LeTour Wednesday evening…”

    FYI here is the LeTour menu, a modest repast can approach the hundred dollar mark – and one can spend hundreds on caviar and $175.00 for a “LES FRUITS DE MER PLATTER”…
