Our pantry is located in Humboldt Park which is a low- to middle-income, mixed African-American and Hispanic neighborhood. The demand for help in Chicago has been increasing, and the region is supported by a number of food pantries and non-profit organizations that can assist low income families and others who need help.
Run solely on the work of volunteers, every Saturday the doors of the food pantry open to the community providing groceries to feed over 200 families a week.
Supplying the needs of hungry people is the goal of the food pantry. We also believe in educating the community about hunger and collaborating with other resources that will help address basic human needs.
In addition to distributing groceries, we also dispense clothing. Human dignity is restored when those who don’t have the means to buy clothing for daily wear, job interviews and special occasions are given the opportunity to shop for free.
We meet every Saturday at the New Life Community Center located at 2704 W North Ave. Volunteers arrive at 9am and food is distributed from 10:30am to noon. Families begin to arrive and form a line outside our facility as early as 8am.
We are accepting the following donations:
