What Clients Receive
The food that we distribute at the Irving Park Community Food Pantry is meant to supplement other food that clients may be able to purchase through other means (WebSNAP benefits, etc.). We provide about 3-5 days of food for our clients based on the number of people in the household.
The Irving Park Community Food Pantry serves individuals and families in the 60618 zip code west of Kedzie Avenue and the entire 60641 zip code. Clients who do not live within our pantry service area will be served once and referred to the pantry which serves the zip code/service area in which they live. There are over 600 food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters in the Chicago area that are network members of the Greater Chicago Food Depository.
