Last week, Eli’s participated in The Chicago Help Initiative‘s (CHI) Annual Fundraiser “Chicago Recipes” to raise funds to support their free weekly meals and programs for Chicagoans in need and experiencing homelessness. The event featured bite size samples from Eli’s and other Chicago restaurants in addition to auction items and raffle prizes.

The Chicago Help Initiative (CHI) is a consortium of business, residential, religious, social services, institutional and volunteer leaders striving to promote an atmosphere of dignity and compassion toward those in need by providing access to food, health services, shelter and employment.

The Eli’s Cheesecake Compant has been a long time supporter of CHI. Check out this video of Eli’s President Marc Schulman on what this organization has meant to Eli’s:
