The Tuesday Night Supper Program offers a hot meal each week, donated by local restaurants, to 130 hungry and homeless men, women and children who come to Catholic Charities. Many adult guests choose to participate in “After Supper Visions,” a volunteer-driven outreach and enrichment effort started in 2002 at the Tuesday Night Supper Program.
Every year, the guests are given disposable cameras to take photographs of whatever subject matter they find interesting or beautiful in the City of Chicago. Volunteers develop the film, and guests select their best prints for display at an annual exhibit at Catholic Charities. The exhibition, and now a website where photos and notecards are sold, give the public the opportunity to connect with those in need on a creative level, while encouraging their efforts to earn income and attain self-sufficiency.
