N4EJ has been organizing food distribution dates at rotating sites on the Southwest Side, in partnership with Gourmet Gorilla and the USDA. Our program ran most weeks from June through September 2020, and we plan to resume in 2021. So far we have distributed more than $250,000 worth of food.
A series of open discussions about environmental justice and what it means for our community, these (currently virtual) conversations are a chance for us all to connect and consider the issues facing us and what we can do about them.
We try to track the announcement of new developments and potential sources of pollution, and warn the community as soon as we find anything.
