Lakeview Pantry

THE STORY:

One of Chicago’s largest and longest-operating food pantries, Lakeview Pantry’s mission is to eliminate hunger and poverty in our community by providing food to fill the basic need of hungry people; increasing the independence of our clients through self-help initiatives and other innovative programs; and raising awareness of hunger and poverty and working towards solutions to eliminate them. Our vision is to be a stable presence in the communities we serve, and to be a model of compassionate, effective, and collaborative service delivery by building upon our Food Distribution excellence, achieving Client Services excellence, and building capacity and strengthening our ability to carry out our mission. Our ultimate goal is the eradication of hunger and poverty in our communities. Every dollar donated to Lakeview Pantry allows us to provide approximately 10 pounds of food to our neighbors in need. The USDA calculates that 1.2 pounds is an average meal (determined of course by age and appetite of individuals). Last year the Pantry fed 8,200 individuals who visited the Pantry a total of 40,000 times. Of these, about 170 are Home Delivery clients who receive Pantry deliveries approximately 2,000 times over one year. Last year we distributed $1.6 million pounds of food – 800 tons. Our Social Services program provided almost 700 of our clients with social services in our last fiscal year. Available during food distribution, walk-in case management is on-site to answer client questions about public benefits and community resources. Longer-term services are available as well to address the underlying challenges that keep people in poverty, such as unstable housing, extended joblessness, and lack of social supports. Additionally, the program hosts monthly educational and social groups, such as a food tasting and nutrition hour and a job skills workshop. This program has become increasingly vital during an extended period of shrinking support for low-income people in Illinois.
