Dion's Chicago Dream Inc 


Health Equity Through Logistics for Chicago's Communities 

Dion’s Chicago Dream (DCD) is to improve health outcomes & center health equity through its industry-leading approach to addressing food security at the intersection of last-mile delivery and logistics. Dion's Dream is to use nutritional philanthropy as a catalyst to build community and transform lives. As an idea born in the heart of Englewood to give back to the community that raised him, Dion's initiative has expanded into a nonprofit social enterprise model that champions workforce development and the stabilization of food quality. Dion's Chicago Dream's Fridge, Deliveries and Vaults provide a full suite of food access solutions for the diversity needed of health equity circumstances.

To date, Dream Deliveries has brought more than 170,000 pounds of healthy food to the doorsteps of nearly 2,100 residents. Their goal is to serve at least 50 households in 2024 — relieving food insecurity for 50 families for a full year.

Dion’s Chicago Dream will receive a $40,000 grant from Simply Organic in 2024 to continue to expand Dream Deliveries and the positive impact of nutritious foods for families in the Chicagoland area.
