Food Pantry

When: Every Tuesday, between 5:30 and 7:30pm.

Where: All Saints’ Episcopal Church, 4550 N. Hermitage Ave. Chicago, IL

The RCS Food Pantry hosts an average of 250 pantry visits and enjoys the volunteer efforts of an average of 40 volunteers each week. Our wonderful corps of volunteers includes All Saints’ parishioners, neighbors, community members who want to reach out and be connected to the neighborhood in which they live, and community groups.

RCS offers neighbors a choice of grocery items each week. We strive for nutritional balance in the food we provide, and offer a quart of milk and a fresh loaf of bread each week. We also assemble bags of already prepared foods for those who are without access to kitchen facilities.

Weekend Pantry

When: Once a month on the second Saturday. Open while supplies last starting at 9:00am.

Where: In front of Ravenswood Elementary School at the corner of Montrose and Paulina in Chicago.

The weekend Mobile Pantry offers a selection of fresh fruits and vegetables, bread and non-perishable food items in a farmer’s market-style atmosphere at no charge to families in need of food assistance. Participants need not have a student enrolled at Ravenswood School.

This program is made possible through two partnerships: one with Ravenswood School who provides the space and one with the Greater Chicago Food Depository, who provides the produce-heavy truck load of food that is distributed each month.
