As a supporter of Lakeview Pantry, we want you to be the first to hear some exciting news regarding our future service to this community where since 1970, with your help, we have served our neighbors who struggle to put food on their table.
This summer, we expect to complete the purchase of a new home at 3945 North Sheridan. This is a necessary move as we have outgrown our current home at 3831 North Broadway where we have been located for the past 12 years. This new space offers many benefits that allow us to carry out our mission, including:
• 7,500 square feet of space—nearly double the size of our Broadway location, providing us with the
opportunity to serve more clients should the need arise, offer a community room for client gatherings,
and much-needed work and break space for staff and our 800 annual volunteers.
• Convenient location, 50 feet from the Red Line ‘L’ Sheridan stop.
• Long-term stability offered by building ownership, in the community we have served for 44 years.
There is much work to be done to secure the site and launch the most transformational period in our long and proud history—a history made possible through your compassion.
We will keep you updated on the progress of our move, and look forward to having you there when we open the doors of our new home!
Until then, do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions, or ideas on how you would like to help. Please note, until we move into our new home, all food distribution will remain as is at the 3831 North Broadway location. We will also continue our usual work at our satellite location (1414 West Oakdale). Thanks for all you do!
