Leveraging technology to solve food insecurity

What We Do

We partner with community organizations to identify families and individuals experiencing food insecurity. Our partnerships with local restaurants allow us to purchase nutritious, to-go meals for those in need while boosting business revenue and contributing to community investment.

Our work begins in bustling kitchens where our restaurant partners prepare prepaid meals for neighbors in need. To continue our community mission, our restaurant partners are paired with a Prosper Chicago mentor who provides support with operations, staffing, marketing, and legal needs.

Our community partners and donors have helped us continue our mission of providing free meals for families and individuals in need. Their support means everything to us. Join us as a partner or community donor!

TESTIMONIALS

"Prosper Chicago provided 4,000 meals to Catholic schools and students during the height of food insecurity for the city of Chicago. They were a lifeline for those families and communities.

Prosper Chicago is easy to work with, passionate about their mission, and I look forward to working with them in the future."

“Prosper Chicago stepped up to meet food insecurity needs when it was needed most. Their approach to delivering hundreds of meals to Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago families and Club members was seamless.

 

Their partnership amplified our impact in Chicago’s most under-resourced communities, as Club families knew they could depend on Prosper Chicago and our Clubs during their greatest time of need.”
