Food Pantry Resources 🍞🍎🥦
Our partners at West 40 have created a calendar of all the local food pantries on the Community Resources Website HERE. On that page, there is also a list of the Unity Fridges in the area, Unity Fridges are public refrigerators that are stocked by community members with food, it is a "leave what you can, take what you need" model. Additionally, HERE is the link to the Greater Chicago Food Depository, it has the whole list of food resources in the whole Chicagoland Area.
