About Us

The Common Pantry is the oldest continuously operating food pantry in Chicago, serving the community since 1967. We provide emergency food and personal supplies along with social service assistance to individuals and families struggling with food insecurity in our community. Our client base is about 325 families. Every Wednesday we distribute food (1-4 pm and 6-8 pm) and offer our Common Community program which includes a lunch (serving about 100 weekly) and social service referrals and housing assistance administered by a Program Manager and volunteers. We receive a CDBG grant from the city to support our housing services.
