LaPointe Volunteers at New Hope Food Pantry

Yesterday, LaPointe and her team spent the morning at New Hope Community Food Pantry in Norwood Park where they toured the pantry, helped to organize a shipment of food, and prepped bags to be sent home with families. If you’re someone who’s struggling to secure food, their hours of operation are 9:30-11:30am on Tuesdays. They serve residents from the following ZIP codes: 60630, 60631, 60646, 60706, and 60656.

Like most other pantries, New Hope faces its own challenges when trying to meet the increased needs of the community. If you’re interested in supporting their efforts, you can donate your time, food, or make a monetary contribution.
