On Saturday, February 16, Food For Friends partnered with Lee n’ Eddies catering again to serve about 100 servings to 80-90 men (some had seconds!) at the Ewing Annex Hotel in Chicago. The article below was sent in by Noah Lee. (Thanks Noah!!) . To see all the pictures from this event, check out the Facebook Album “2019Feb16 – Ewing Annex Hotel ”
On Saturday, February 16, we had a lot of fun serving a great meal again at the Ewing Annex Hotel.
The Annex Hotel provides affordable temporary housing for men in need. Many of the men stay at local shelters most of the time and stay at the Annex when they can afford to do so. The Annex, unlike the shelters, provides the men their own rooms so they can enjoy some privacy. The hotel houses 130 men in transition and they were nearly at capacity with only 3 vacancies on this cold February day.
