Chicago Marks World Refugee Day

As the U.N. readies to mark World Refugee Day on June 20th, we talk about the lives and hardships of migrants in Chicago with Danielle Hrzic, a co-founder of Gourmet Gorilla, a local and organic food service company that serves meals, especially to children. Joining Hrzic is Katy Fohrman, supervisor of the Refugee and Immigrant Community Services Program at Heartland Alliance. Heartland partners with Gourmet Gorilla to help the company hire and mentor refugees. 

Chicago will celebrate World Refugee Day on June 18th at the Chicago Cultural Center.
