Re: BEDS Plus Nutritional Guidelines Document

Posted Aug 5, 2022 by Susan Dever of BEDS Plus

Good morning meal providers! About a year and a half ago, BEDS Plus was awarded a grant from the Illinois Public Health Institute. In order to receive the entire grant, we have been trying to make small changes to provide healthier meals to our clients in the hotels, in our supportive housing units as well as our housed clients. You may have noticed there have been some changes on the detail portion of the Meal Train. Today I am asking you to read our Nutritional Guidelines document. The link is available to copy and paste from the detail section of the Meal Train. Unfortunately, Meal Train, does not let me include links or email addresses in my emails. We hope you will support our mission. On another note, there are still plenty of openings for August meals. If you cannot provide a meal, please consider ordering an item from our Amazon Wish List. The link for the Amazon Wish List is available in the detail section of the Meal Train also. Every little bit helps!! We are also still in need of an adult men's bike in good condition as well as small denomination gift cards for Dunkin and McDonalds. These gift cards allow those clients who are still on the street a couple hours of relief from the heat and rain. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Thank you all for all you do to help our less fortunate friends! Sue Dever BEDS Plus Emergency Services Coordinator 708-261-7078
