FREE Austin Pop-Up Food Pantry

75lbs of FREE FOOD per household at these Austin Pop-Up Food Pantries!


Thursday 7/16, 7/30, 8/13, 8/27 from 10am-1pm
at Leamington & Kinzie (right behind By The Hand Club For Kids)

Drive-Up is recommended. If walking, bring a cart, wagon, or a friend to help carry the 75 pounds of food home.

Austin Coming Together (ACT) has partnered with the Greater Chicago Food Depository and the City of Chicago to host these “pop-up” food distribution events to provide access to a variety of healthy and nutritious foods, including fresh produce and shelf-stable items.

There will be enough boxes of food to serve ONE THOUSAND HOUSEHOLDS at each event!

This effort is part of Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s Racial Equity Rapid Response to address the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on minority communities on Chicago’s South and West Sides.

This event is open to the public but intended for people in need who live in or near the Austin community.
