The Irving Park Community Food Pantry serves approximately 1700 people in 600 households in the 60641 and western half of 60618 ZIP codes on Chicago's Northwest Side. We provide a full range of food, including meat, produce, bread, canned goods and other staples to provide at least a three-day supply of food to each household. We also offer on-line SNAP qualification and client resources for help with housing, job searches, medical concerns and other issues.
During the year, we offer special distributions to qualified clients for coats (October), holiday toys (December), Easter baskets (spring) and school supplies (August). We also provide a special distribution for a holiday meal in December to all clients.
The Hunger Walk represents our largest fund-raising opportunity of the year. Thank you for your support to help us continue living up to our motto of being "Neighbors Helping Neighbors!"
