Covid-19: Support meals for Evanston's seniors

For the past 10 days, Jennifer Eason and William Eason of Jennifer's Edibles have been providing free delivered dinners to Evanston's seniors and those most vulnerable to Covid-19. They started with five requests and are now serving 52 people. They have a growing group of volunteers who shop for, prepare, and deliver the meals, and they're hoping to increase their capacity and serve 100 seniors every day for the next 30 days. For many of the people who have requested a meal, William says, it's the only meal they eat.

The brother and sister pair have shut down the restaurant for all other business and are focusing solely on this effort to keep seniors fed during the Coronavirus crisis.

In order to serve 100 people each day for the next 30 days--that's 3,000 meals--they need to raise $21,000, or $7 per meal.

I'm Nina Kavin.
I live in Evanston.  
I'm raising funds for Jennifer's Edibles because I've known Jennifer and enjoyed her restaurant and her food for the past five years, and I admire Jennifer and William's selfless efforts to support our community at this time of great need.
The funds raised will primarily support the purchase of ingredients to keep up with meal requests for 100 seniors over 30 days.
Jennifer Eason, owner of Jennifer's Edibles, will be given access to funds raised so she and William can withdraw directly.
