Many of you have already heard the unfortunate news that Jennifer Eason of Jennifer's Edibles, and her non-proft JEFC (Jennifer's Edibles Feeds the Community), broke her ankle slipping on ice last week.
Jennifer had surgery a couple of days ago, and won't be able to work for at least six--and maybe eight--weeks. Her restaurant, Jennifer’s Edibles, and her livelihood, are now at risk. As you may know, Jennifer's Edibles also has a nonprofit arm that prepares and delivers meals to Evanston seniors and residents who are shut-in. During the pandemic, she served--with the help of a cadre of dedicated volunteers--about 200 people a day!
Jennifer always has a smile and a kind word, and this injury hasn't only injured her ankle but it's broken her heart. She wants to be up and at it doing what she does best: feeding folks in Evanston!
Since Jennifer isn’t able to work, she needs to hire help to keep all aspects of the business going.
How can you help?
Donate here to tide Jennifer and her restaurant over through her recovery (it will help with supplies, rent, utilities, paying staff, and offsetting Jennifer’s medical expenses—she is uninsured);
Please patronize the business during business hours; and
Keep meals going to seniors and shut-ins from Jennifers non-profit (one meal costs $8). Again, donate here.
