Elizabeth Ann Seton Food Pantry and Sandwich Kitchen

The Elizabeth Ann Seton Food Pantry and Sandwich Window began in 1980, handing out coffee and sandwiches to patrons on our front porch. Today, our sandwich kitchen is open 4 days a week: Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. We serve, on average, fifty to sixty meals a day.  We also provide hygiene kits, socks, gloves, hats and winter clothing to our guests. Volunteers include parishioners, DePaul students, faculty and staff, and others from the neighborhood.

Volunteer shifts start at 7:15am where food and meals are prepped. The kitchen is open to serve meals from 8:00am to 9:30am. Following food service, there is clean up until 10:00am. We are limited to four volunteers per shift.

Our volunteers can schedule themselves using an online scheduling system. You will need to create an account to be able to sign up. A link to do this is provided below.
