We hope to once again gather with friends at this year’s Fighting Hunger, Feeding Hope! We have set an ambitious goal of $350,000 to support Lakeview Pantry’s vital community programs. With your support, we will continue providing food for today and hope for tomorrow for our neighbors.

  • Where: RPM on the Water | 317 N Clark Street, Chicago, IL
  • What: A fabulous four-course meal comprised of the best of RPM’s signature menu, and a program to honor the Pantry’s impact over the past year.

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 to this event, so we will continue to inform our decision making concerning in-person aspects of the event with city, state, and CDC guidelines.

With this in mind, guests the night of the event 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.

We’re also glad to provide a virtual program for anyone who is unable to join us in person. Should plans change, we will be sure to communicate updates with attendees by email and keep relevant, up-to-date information available on the event website at

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.”
