Announcing La Casa Norte’s Fresh Market

Are you in need of food assistance?

If you or someone you know is experiencing hunger, visit La Casa Norte’s Fresh Market!

The Fresh Market is a food pantry designed like a grocery store, where low-income residents of Humboldt Park can browse the aisles for fresh, nutritious food for the whole family. The Fresh Market will launch on March 18, 2019 and open its doors every Monday from 11 A.M. to 3 P.M. to provide healthy food along with nutrition education for Humboldt Park community members in need. Operated in partnership with Lakeview Pantry, the Fresh Market is located on the first floor of La Casa Norte’s new Community Center at 3533 W. North Ave. Chicago, IL 60647. La Casa Norte’s Fresh Market will be a welcoming and affirming place for all those in need of fresh food to take home. All services will be accessible to both English and Spanish speakers.

Join us to shop the aisles of the Market if you reside within the following street boundaries:
North Ave. (to the north), Chicago Ave. (to the south), Kostner Ave. (to the west), and Kedzie Ave. (to the east). N

Clients visiting the Fresh Market will also be eligible for Lakeview Pantry’s comprehensive social services including public benefits assistance, job search training, and mental health counseling, as well as La Casa Norte’s information and referral services.
