Who We Are

The New Hope Community Food Pantry is an emergency food pantry serving zip codes 60630, 60631, 60646, and 60656 on the Northwest side of Chicago.

What We Do

We provide a three to four day supply of food to families in need once per month. We seek to provide all that is needed for a well-balanced diet, although we recognize that our food is only meant to supplement, not provide all the household's needs.

We also refer clients who have additional needs to other available resource providers, give clients some training in nutrition and budgeting, and educate the community about hunger in our area and in the world.

Everyone is served for the first time they come to the pantry, no matter where they live; however, we only regularly serve the zip codes listed under "Who We Are."
