Food Drive

From Feb. 17 through 19, bring three cans of food to the Chicago Auto Show to receive a coupon for $7 admission. All food will be donated to A Safe Haven.

A Safe Haven helps Chicagoans experiencing homelessness become self-sufficient through phased housing, healthy lifestyles, and employment. Learn more at www.ASafeHaven.org.


A Safe Haven is grateful to the sponsors of the Chicago Auto Show Food Drive, including the Chicago Auto Show, the new-car dealers of the Chicago Automobile Trade Association, Chevy Drives Chicagoand Alan Josephsen Co. Inc.

A Safe Haven’s Community Food Pantry distributes food to families from neighborhoods in the food desert surrounding the social enterprise’s main campus at 2750 West Roosevelt Road, just 5 miles from the Auto Show. Some of the food also feeds residents at the homeless services organization, which offers comprehensive services to return individuals in crisis to self-sufficiency. The meals served at A Safe Haven are even prepared by residents participating in the food services job training program, one of several such services offered. A Safe Haven placed over 80% of its Food Service trainees into employment last year.

Visitors’ canned goods will be held and transported in boxes generously donated by Alan Josephsen Co. Inc. Special guests are expected to stop by the booth, to help raise awareness for the issues of homelessness, unemployment, and addiction.

"This is an exciting privilege to participate in A Safe Haven’s Food Drive at the Chicago Auto Show, which I’ve been attending since I was a little boy," said A Safe Haven resident Wilson Dawes, who volunteered at the booth last year. "A Safe Haven has been like a miracle in my life… Thanks to the Auto Show, so many people will learn about A Safe Haven’s wonderful work."

"Over the past 19 years the Chicago Auto Show has collected over 300,000 pounds of food for A Safe Haven and we believe that the food drive is an important element of the work we do each year in putting on the Auto Show in this great community," said Dave Sloan, General Manager of the 2016 Chicago Auto Show.
