How You Can Help

Volunteer: Come put on an apron! Volunteers help cook, serve, and clean up after meals, or simply take time for conversation with our guests. Individuals and groups are welcome – contact Josie  to get started.

Partner with us: Are you a chef? Do you and your friends love to cook? Become our partner. The Tzu Chi Buddhist Midwest Organization, for example, provides lunch on the third Saturday of each month. If you would like to sponsor a meal or work with us in another long-term capacity, contact Isaac.

Donate: There are several ways you can donate to 2 Li’l Fishes. All donations are tax-deductible.

  • Monetary donations: You can donate at our PayPal page here. Checks can also be sent directly in the mail to:
    2 Lil Fishes
    P.O. Box 408319
    Chicago, IL 60640
  • In-kind donations: If you would like to contribute food, condiments, clothing, equipment, etc., please contact Isaac Barrantine (773-213-6865).
