Steakhouse Making Breakfast for Chicago's Homeless Community
Although it's closed to dine-in guests, the kitchen at the Barn Steakhouse in Evanston is still up and running. Owner Amy Morton and her team are making hundreds of meals for the homeless community in her area. "I typically cook one day a week at Connections for the Homeless," Morton said. "They gave me a call and said, 'Can you cook for more?' and I said 'of course'. Then they said 'Could it be every day?' and I was like 'What!?'"Since then, Morton and her team have been at the restaurant by 5 a.m., cooking breakfast and preparing it for delivery. From breakfast burritos to sandwiches, and even french toast, Morton and her team are making breakfast foods that are easy to individually wrap and distribute.
