Lakeview Pantry was the largest food pantry in Chicago, providing food and social services to people in need on Chicago’s north side for more than 50 years.
The challenge was Lakeview Panty had evolved beyond providing groceries. They offer mental health services, job training, and housing, in addition to their core service as a food pantry. In addition they served all of Chicago, not simply the Lakeview neighborhood. In short they had outgrown their mission in both scope and geography.
