We meet to create a vision of thriving healthy community for all driven by the individuals in the arena striving to heal our city through community, food, love, and care. We want to know what success looks like to you. What we want our community to be. We need your experiences, perspectives, and more importantly your voice. Let’s come together and explore how we can support, learn, and establish how we can bring this to fruition. Let’s be the example of togetherness we want for Chicagoland.
