Give Local: Support Artizone, SandwichMeIn and Lula Cafe As They Give Back To The Community Over The Holidays

You can shop local but some Thanksgiving providers are giving local and supporting those in need and neighborhood organizations over the holidays.

Zealous Good is partnering with Artizone Chicago to create more impactful culinary connections. While reserving goodies for your Thanksgiving meal, you can help them provide a meal to a family in need. All you have to do is order items from the Thanksgiving section. The more Thanksgiving orders that shoppers place, the more meals Artizone will deliver to Chicago families in need. It is that simple. For every 4 orders placed in the turkey time aisle, a family in need will receive a meal delivered the same way Artizone delivers to their customers. Artizone and Zealous Good have joined forces to ensure that Chicago families in need can have the Thanksgiving celebration they are hoping for. The meals will include:

A 10-12 lb. local HoKa Turkey from Gepperth’s Meat Market

Fresh green beans from Artizone Fresh Produce

Smoky Pumpkin Bisque from Karl’s Craft Soup (I have bought some and this is really good!)

Poultry Seasoning from The Spice House

7-piece truffle set from Katherine Anne Confections (Katherine Anne’s truffles are a mini-dessert in a truffle)

The partnership between Zealous Good, a local organization that works to increase the social value of donations by matching specific goods to specific needs, and Artizone ensures that these hand-crafted local meals will go to families who can really use them.

Brittany Martin Graunke, the Founder of CEO of Zealous Good says, “Partnerships like this allow us to really hone in on what the local need is and help to meet it. We are grateful to be partnering with to be bringing these wonderful meals to deserving families through organizations such as Lost Boyz and The Society of St. Vincent de Paul.
