Free~N~Deed Market

Mission part of the charitable assistance programs offered by the American Association of Single Parents (AASP), the Free N Deed (FND) will be an extension of those services.

FND market will be a lifeline for members of the Dolton and Calumet City communities and those who live in the surrounding areas. FND will supply emergency groceries and support the nutritional health of community members through cooking demonstrations and classes. FND will seek to establish linkage agreements with other community organizations that support the needs and concerns of the community.

FND Market Vision

FND intends to ensure that every customer has dignity in their “shopping” experience. We realize that food insecurity is a problem that faces far too many households in our country, and especially in the South Suburban region of Chicago. We hope to change the trajectory of community members through educational workshops and seminars that empower them to become agents of change in their community.

AASP is grateful for our community partnerships with the Greater Chicago Food Depository and Midwest Food Bank. Each organization plays a major role in helping us provide quality food items.
