Helping Neighbors

Last week, the Happy Belly Chefs received an email from a local resident who has been bringing some items to residents at the St. Elizabeth’s apartments here in Channahon. To those of you who aren’t familiar with the apartments, they are an affordable housing development for seniors with some of the units made available for low income senior tenants. Some of the residents are afraid to venture out during the current situation, not wanting to go to a store for things that they need, like food!! After reading the email and talking with the Happy Belly ladies, we decided to try and help. We are going to take donations on the online store so that we can buy supplies and make freezer meals for all of the residents in the complex. There are 48 apartments and we are going to be working this week to gather dietary restrictions/allergy information from one of the on-site managers, and once we have that information we are going to create a menu and donate our time and kitchen time to food businesses that work here to make up as many meals as we can for the residents. Something to know that their neighbors care about them and are here for them. If you would like to make a donation, you can do so at, all proceeds will be spent on food/ingredients for as many meals as we can make.
