Food Pantry and Support Services

About The Food Pantry

Throughout its history, Northwestern Settlment has provided food and emergency services to residents of the West Town community. In 1933, Settlment board members beagn distributing meals to neighborhood schools to feed students coping with the Great Depression, dealing an average of 4,000 meals each day. 

Today, many West Town families turn to the Settlement’s Food Pantry & Support Services program because they know that here, they will find a quick and caring response to their needs.

We are open Monday through Thursday from 9:00AM to11:00AM and 1:00PM to 3:00PM.
