The Friendship Center offers an assortment of groceries — including fresh fruits and vegetables, meat and fish, dairy items, bread and other staples — four days a week.

Please bring a valid ID and proof of address (electrical bill, lease, etc.) on your first visit. If you do not have these documents, we still may be able to give you a more limited amount of food. Come by during distribution or give us a call, and we can help answer these questions. Though our primary service area is Albany Park, Lincoln Square, North Park, Ravenswood, and West Ridge, our food pantry currently serves anyone with proof of a Cook County address.
