"Organizations including the Garfield Park Community Council, the Rite to Wellness Collaborative and West Side United partnered to support the pop-up grocery store so the neighborhood’s food ecosystems would have both emergency food options as well places to buy food. The pop-up is supported by a $25,000 grant from the Chicago Region Food System Fund, and the food is supplied by 40 Acres and Top Box Foods.
