2011 $100,000 Impact Grant Recipient

Chicago Lights provides hope and opportunity to our city’s children, youth and adults who face the challenges of poverty.  The Impact Grant purchased, installed and equipped a hard-shelled greenhouse-learning lab that is used for year-round food production, and as an indoor classroom and meeting area for children’s programs, community residents and the youth employed by the farm.
