Next Door Dinners is a community dinner project with a pay-what-you-can model! We serve a three course dinner that sells out around 50 people. The dinner sources from Chicago urban farmers, retailers, and makers.
Come join us for a celebration of Puerto Rican culture and food, while we raise money for the hurricane relief support the island needs and deserves.
LOCATION: Wicker Park Lutheran Church, 1500 N Hoyne Ave, Chicago, IL 60622
The price for a ticket to “break-even” for dinner and venue costs is about $15 a person. All profits beyond that point are donated.
Last month, some gave $5 and some gave $50. When buying your ticket, please consider your socioeconomic status, inherent wealth, and access to fresh food.
This month, we will be donating all profits to an organization located in Puerto Rico called Comité Caborrojeño Por Salud y Ambiente Inc. (Committee for Health and the Environment).
The organization partners with local schools in Boquerón, PR and will use funds to purchase school supplies, personal hygiene products, and snacks/meals for kids in the aftercare program. These after-school programs support children from families who are often low-income and had their homes damaged by the hurricane. They work on their homework, eat, and have a place to hang out until 5pm!
Boqueron, PR was highly damaged in September by Hurricane Fiona. Let's all get together to support our neighbors in PR!
