Anyone who needs food can receive a variety of dry goods, meat and dairy, and fresh produce from our pantry. For many of our clients, this food assistance allows them to focus on their health and healing while they plan for their futures. People visiting our food pantry can meet with our Community Advocate if they need other services from Lutheran Settlement House or one of our partners. Food also brings people together, and shared meals create community at Jane Addams Place and our Senior Community Center, as well as during our free monthly community meal in Fishtown.
