From the Statewide Health Improvement Partnership - July 21, 2020

The Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP) program has partnered with Ruby’s Pantry to distribute gift certificates to people living in Cook County. The gift certificates are good for one $20 share.

Donations were made from our community to cover the cost of the gift certificates to support
food access in Cook County. Thank you to all of the people that donated! These certificates are free to community members who ask for them. There are no income qualifications, no requirements, no questions asked. There are no restrictions on how many times a community member can request a gift certificate.  They are available to anyone who needs them.

If you have questions, please contact the Cook County SHIP Coordinator, Andrea Orest, at [email protected] or 218-877-8262.
