Support our COVID-19 response
Lakeview Pantry is committed to supporting our low income residents and their families during the COVID-19 outbreak. 40% of Chicagoans live in economic hardship which means the loss of just one paycheck, or even one shift at work can cause a dramatic decrease in financial stability, leading to food insecurity. Lakeview Pantry will be here to help those affected by this crisis.
With more than 5,000 volunteers, we have many volunteer opportunities for adults, children, and families!

“I first became interested in Lakeview Pantry after I retired and was looking for a volunteering opportunity to give back to the community. During this time I saw firsthand the real need for this service. Unfortunately, arthritis and a bad back forced me to step back from the physical work, but I have been happy to continue with my financial support. Congratulations to Lakeview Pantry on their 50 years of service!”
