St. Lucy's Food Pantry

Located in the middle of one of the poorest areas in the country, St. Lucy's Food Pantry welcomes families in the Near Westside neighborhood with its clean, comfortable and cheerful atmosphere. Every month, the pantry provides nearly 500 of the community's neediest families with canned foods, personal items and nonperishable goods. Until recently, the program lacked the ability to offer fresh fruits and vegetables, which are essential to a balanced diet and good health.

The Community Foundation provided funding for improvements to the pantry, including the addition of a produce cooler. With fresh fruits and vegetables now available, local families have been able to improve nutrition and rely less on prepared meals and canned foods that are high in additives. The Community Foundation helped St. Lucy's Food Pantry to better serve our most vulnerable families, making it Where the Smart Money Gives Back.
