For Joe Maddon, the holiday season isn’t over quite yet. On Monday, the Cubs manager and his wife, Jaye, spent the afternoon shopping at a Jewel-Osco for food and ingredients he’ll use at his Thanksmas dinner at the Chicago Help Initiative Wednesday Dinner Program. The evening will kick off the annual Cubs Caravan Tour, which will take place throughout the community.

Maddon will prepare and serve a traditional home-cooked Italian dinner to 200 homeless community members. Cubs players and coaches will serve alongside the skipper to help raise awareness about Chicago’s homeless population.

Jewel-Osco graciously contributed $5,000 to Cubs Charities to help make this effort possible.
