Caring for our Community

COVID-19 Precautions

The health, safety, and well-being of our Lakeview Pantry community is top of mind as we look forward our events, so we will continue to inform our decision making concerning in-person aspects with city, state, and CDC guidelines.

With this in mind, guests at our in-person events will be required to supply proof of vaccination (physical or digital). Attendees will be asked to mask when not actively eating or drinking, in accordance with city mandates, and vendors will be required to remain masked for the duration of the event.

Fall Fundraiser: Feeding Hope Gala

Exclusive, high-end dinner event held in the fall, hosted by the Board of Directors. The event includes a live auction of Lakeview Pantry’s operating expenses and presentation of the Feeding Hope Awards (past winners include Cubs Charities and Conagra Brands). Stay tuned for more details about our 2022 event!

Spring Fundraiser: The End Hunger Social

Cocktail reception with a silent auction held in the spring, hosted by the Young Leaders Board. 200-300 up-and-coming professionals in attendance.

“It’s shocking that in the heartland of a country where billions of pounds of food go to waste each year, 1 in 6 Chicagoans don’t know where they’ll find their next meal, resulting in devastating impacts on the health and livelihood of our neighbors. Lakeview Pantry is committed to the fight against hunger and poverty in Chicago and we are extremely grateful to our community members who support us along the way.”

Casey Herman
Board President

Lakeview Pantry Exists Because of the Support of Our Neighbors.
