MGR's community pantry, The Food Circle, is a weekly event dedicated to providing Chicago's hungry and needy with healthy food.
The Food Circle (TFC) began in the summer of 2007, with a weekly food donation from Trader Joe's.
In 2009, Whole Foods in Lincoln Park began to make weekly donations in support of TFC as well.
Thanks to their continued help and support, over 5,000 bags of food have been distributed. We strive to provide healthy
and balanced food to our patrons, and are known for consistently offering fresh fruits and vegetables.
We are very thankful to have Trader Joe's and Whole Foods' continued help addressing the need of low-income Chicago families
for healthy food and assistance.
Volunteer with The Food Circle
Our weekly event would not be possible without the support of caring volunteers, who help us bag and distribute the goods every week.
