Re: Addition to Meal Calendar

Posted Jan 10, 2022 by Susan Dever of BEDS Plus

Good morning Meal Train providers! I’ve made an addition to our meal calendar for the month. Our numbers at the hotel have gone up quite a bit since I opened the calendar in December. I’ve added a space for 10 more meals to cover the increase. For those of you who are already signed up on a specific date and would like to add 10 more meals to you menu, please sign up for the extra space. Those of you who are not signed up and are overwhelmed with the thought of making 20 or 35 meals, this is perfect for you! Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Thank you so much for keeping our homeless friends well fed! Sue Dever BEDS Plus Emergency Services Coordinator 708-261-7078


Re: Changes With Overnight Shelter

Posted Aug 13, 2021 by Susan Dever of BEDS Plus

Hello meal providers, We received word last night that overnight shelters will not be resuming in November. With the climbing numbers of infections and deaths relating to the viruses, congregated shelter would not be safe for our clients nor our volunteers. We will continue to house clients in hotels and, with our rapid rehousing program, clients are moving into apartments at an amazingly quick rate! I know it is not very convenient for you to prepare, individually pack, and then drop your meals at our LaGrange office by 10:30am, but I assure you, those meals are appreciated and necessary. On that note, there are many openings for meals yet for August. We are also in need of shelf stable items, especially microwaveable meals such as Dinty Moore, Hormel, mac and cheese, ramen noodles, soup, etc. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you all so much for all you do to support BEDS Plus and our clients especially during this very difficult time in our history!! Sue Dever BEDS Plus Emergency Services Coordinator 708-261-7078
