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 Chicago and 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.
As the nation’s largest, the Chicago Auto Show spans more than one million square feet of contiguous one-floor space, displays multiple world and North American introductions and showcases a complete range of domestic and imported passenger cars, trucks, sport-utility vehicles, minivans and concept cars.
