EVANSTON - Interfaith Action of Evanston, a group of diverse faith communities serving people who are homeless and hungry, will host its annual fundraising event, Keep the Doors Open, on May 30. The public is invited to the event, which includes a soup kitchen meal from Curt’s Café at 5:30 p.m., followed by a 6:30 p.m. program delivered online, and an hour of virtual small-group socializing. Interfaith Action's first-ever online event will be a Soup Kitchen Social, featuring an online presentation, in words and pictures, of how its many volunteers and generous local churches continue to host and serve those in need, underscoring its motto, “Action is our middle name.” Participants will carry out and enjoy an actual soup kitchen meal that they take to the comfort of their own homes then join the online program on a digital device to find out how IAE is adapting to these unusual times and learn how to help serve neighbors experiencing hunger and homelessness. There will also be an opportunity to chat in small online groups via Zoom with IAE and civic leaders and other IAE supporters. Interfaith Action’s work includes daily soup kitchens for those in need of food as well as a monthly ProduceMobile that distributes fresh fruit and vegetables. Interfaith Action also operates a morning Hospitality Center, delivering career counseling and computer-based job training, along with breakfast. This spring, IAE worked with the city of Evanston and other agencies to find housing for Evanston residents experiencing homelessness during the Covid-19 quarantine. “While we would love to gather in person to share the ongoing good news of our efforts, that’s not possible this year,” says Sue Murphy, executive director of Interfaith Action. “We still need to Keep the Doors Open on our soup kitchens and we are actually seeing many more people than normal at the ProduceMobile, as economic conditions mean more people are food-insecure.” Tickets can be purchased at https://interfaithactionofevanston.networkforgood.com/events/19610-keep-the-doors-open-2020. Details on meal pick-up and virtual connections will be provided at the time of ticket delivery.
