Lincoln Square Friendship Center

The Lincoln Square Friendship Center is a new initiative led by many clergy members in the 47th Ward. During monthly 47th Ward Clergy Meetings several members discussed the need for another pantry to serve the hungry in our area. Those discussions led them to research and investigate opening a new pantry.
After their initial exploration and research, the group decided to team up with the North Park Friendship Center. They were 100% ready for a 2nd location and were happy to help the new venture in every way through their relationship with Greater Chicago Food Depository. There are 5 neighborhood churches that are committed to the new pantry. Please consider supporting this new initiative aimed at fighting hunger in our community. Information on the fundraiser can be found below.

Jam for Bread is a fundraiser for the new food pantry. We are also going to have a pet food pantry as a separate initiative of the pantry.
