The Irving Park Food Pantry now operates from Emanuel United Methodist Church at 4256 N Ridgeway every Wednesday morning from 9 a.m. to noon and on the second Tuesday night of every month (beginning September 10th) from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

The Pantry is sad to leave its home where it started 35 years ago at Irving Park United Methodist Church. But we are very happy the pantry has found an excellent facility at another United Methodist church that is located in our boundaries so our dedicated volunteers can continue to serve clients old and new for many years to come.

Community Dinners resume this fall. Watch for upcoming opportunities for food and fellowship. If you are interested in hosting a dinner, please see pastor Hope.
