A message from Common Pantry:

"Common Pantry has expanded its home delivery program to accommodate those at a greater risk of Covid-19. They have been able to offer emergency one time home deliveries to those in need on the northside of the city, as well as connect eligible seniors to the city's Meal on Wheels program for more sustained nutrition. If you know of a senior or vulnerable person in need, please let them know via email at [email protected] or by phone at 773-327-0553.

Common Pantry has also been trying to spread the word about new SNAP eligibility due to the pandemic to those who may have recently lost jobs.. The hotline number to call to apply for SNAP benefits and Medicaid is 773-843-5416. This will connect you to the Benefits Access Team at the Greater Chicago Food Depository."

Greetings, everyone. The staff in the Student Pantry are glad that students are making more use of the pantry's services and getting food. As of now, the pantry has limited options in terms of available food to give out. We will be updating the online order form tomorrow to truly reflect what is available. Know that when receiving further communication about unavailable items in your order, it is due to limited amounts of items available.

We appreciate your patience and understanding. We will be working hard to get more food here for you.

Take care and stay safe!
