During the height of the pandemic, Feed Chicago provided thousands of meals to first responders and families facing food insecurity throughout Chicagoland. Prosper Chicago was born out of this initiative to create a permanent, sustainable model for taking on the challenges of food insecurity in our communities.


"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.”
