Gary Comer Youth Center provides services and partners with other organizations in Chatham, Greater Grand Crossing, Avalon, and Auburn-Gresham. The Center is a self-sponsored Child and Adult Care Food Program and Summer Service Food Program site. It currently grows produce on its nearly 2-acre urban farm providing weekly donations of fresh, organic food to local food pantries and community partners. The Center collaborates with local restaurants and businesses of the 75th and 79th Street corridors to provide half-price produce and general support for business operations.
