CHICAGO – Cars lined up Tuesday for a food giveaway in the Woodlawn neighborhood.
Members of the Apostolic Church of God handed boxes of food to families in need at 63rd and Dorchester. The giveaway was originally supposed to end last week, but the church extended it to today and next Tuesday.
The giveaways started because of the coronavirus, but now that looters have destroyed hundreds of grocers and pharmacies, there are even more concerns for families in need.
Mayor Lori Lightfoot said she and Illinois’ junior United States senator are working with two giant national chains to supply medicine and food where the usual sources have been forced to shut down.
