Saint Anthony Hospital serves the North Lawndale community and has been hit hard by the pandemic. The proportion of patients testing positive for the virus at Saint Anthony Hospital is more than double the statewide average with nearly 50 percent of tests confirmed to have COVID-19.

They are considered a safety net hospital with about 70 percent of their patients insured through Medicaid. The staff there has been stretched with active cases outweighing their ICU beds by a factor of over 3 to 1. Please join us in thanking the front line workers at this hard hit hospital!

Meals were purchased from Himalayan Restaurant in Chicago’s South Loop neighborhood. This locally owned and operated restaurant specializes in Indian and Himalayan/Nepalese food such as chicken tikka, lamb curry, tandoori chicken, biryani and their famous momos and samosas. Please join us in supporting Vivek and his great locally owned restaurant.
