Food Distribution

After server over 20,000 community members, we have ceased our weekly food distribution. 19th Ward Mutual Aid belongs to the Chicagoland Food Sovereignty Coalition. We do continue to supply our neighbors’ meals and food for their families.

Community Pantry Box

The community pantry box is located in the Edna White Memorial Garden, on the corner of 111th (Monterey) and S. Esmond Ave. It is open 24/7, filled with non-perishables, and replenished regularly.

Fresh vegetables will be made available from the Edna White garden as they ripen. This project is in partnership with the 19th Ward Mutual Aid group, Turpin Cares, Beverly Area Arts Alliance, and the Edna White Memorial Garden. Take what you need. Give what you can.

Toiletry Free Store

The Toiletry Free Store is open on the first and third Wednesdays of each month, 3-4:30pm. Located at Morgan Park Presbyterian Church 2017 W 110th Place, Chicago, IL 60643

Turpin Cares, hosts a free store distributing first aid, personal hygiene, and home cleaning items.
