Please help us feed families in Logan Square!
Support FURIE’s Food Pantry: The Red Rag, now located at 3601 W Armitage Ave, Chicago IL.
(previously located a few blocks east at 3521 W Cortland)
In Columbia and other Latin American communities, the Red Rag stands for the immediate need of Community Solidarity and Empowerment during a crisis, especially when the government has failed The Masses. What started as a cry for help, red rags hung on the doors of homes starving under an apathetic government, has evolved into a battle cry against the endless oppression.
Before COVID-19, a monumental National Food Crisis was already decimating communities in the United States, leaving tens of millions struggling to feed themselves and their families. Today, over 54 million of us don’t have enough food, up from 37 million pre-COVID.
