Austin Coming Together (ACT), in collaboration with the Greater Chicago Food Depository and the City of Chicago, is organizing weekly “pop-up” food distribution events to provide access to a variety of healthy and nutritious foods, including fresh produce and shelf-stable items for residents of Austin.

These Austin Food Distributions will run every Thursday from 10am-1pm for the next six weeks with our first event kicking off on Thursday, May 14th. Through this effort, we hope to distribute up to one thousand boxes of food for anyone who needs it during each event. Resources will be given away on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE BASIS.

Food distribution at pop-up pantries is part of Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s Racial Equity Rapid Response to address the racial inequities of COVID-19 on Chicago’s South & West Sides.
