The Ewing Annex Hotel, 430 South Clark in Chicago, is a low income hotel for men. Most of the residents are homeless men with little or no money, or jobs. Food For Friends has been serving at the Ewing Annex Hotel for a number of years and we always get a good reception when we serve.
On November 22, 2018, a small group of Food For Friend volunteers came together to serve and spread some holiday cheer at the Ewing Annex Hotel. Our mission this day was to celebrate Thanksgiving with 150 homeless men at this hotel. We provided them food, smiles and a reminder of what Thanksgiving is all about.
The men began assembling early as they now know that when there is a Food For Friends event, they are going to have a great meal. 🙂 When the food arrived our volunteers went to work prepping the serving line. The meal consisted of Turkey & Dressing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, Jello, california medley, and fresh dinner roll.
The whole serving event went well and the residents, as usual, were grateful. Thanks once again to our partner, Lee N Eddies Catering, for providing the food for this event. We would also like to thank our volunteers who gave their time, smiles and hard work to serve these men a little love via a Thanksgiving meal.
