BENEFIT ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
On August 1, 2000, HFA launched its first congregate meal service in an effort to relieve hunger, provide nutritional needs, and offer socio-cultural support for Chicago’s Korean seniors. Through the lunch program, HFA helps seniors overcome alienation by providing opportunities to find social support, camaraderie, and a deeper sense of community. Today both Chicago and Mt. Prospect Office daily provide nutritious hot Korean meals Monday thru Friday for over 200 seniors residing both in the city and the northern suburbs. Anyone whose age is 60 and over can enjoy the program with a nominal suggested donation. View 2015 April, May, June Menu.
