Health Equity Through Logistics for Chicago’s Communities
Dream Vault tests the possibility of even greater scale in the fight against food insecurity, using cutting-edge logistics, delivery and destination solutions.
The Dream Vault is a network-enabled locker that customers can access weekly with a unique electronic code to get a Dream Delivery box of fresh groceries containing five days worth of pre-measured fruits and vegetables.
Dream Team members stock 25 lockers daily, with each set of lockers having the potential to provide food security to almost 175 households within a 1-mile radius – that’s a staggering 78,000 lbs of fresh food every year per vault!
Dream Fridge is our introductory response to Englewood’s food desert status, poverty rates, and lack of fresh grocery options. The community fridge is open Monday-Friday from 9am-4pm, offering fresh fruits, vegetables, and water to residents. Since its inception, Project Dream Fridge has provided more than 35,550 lbs of fresh food and water across the equivalent of 14,250 meals. With an average of 118 servings of 283 lbs. of food and a weekly cost of $550, the Dream Fridge is a well-received offering.
