Northeast Neighborhood Food Pantry

April 17th, 2013

Northeast Neighborhood Center

803 N. Notre Dame Ave.

For anyone not familiar with or new to the neighborhood, the NENC operates a food pantry at the NENC Center–the firehouse located at 803 N. Notre Dame Ave.  Recipients must live in the 46617 zip code and are eligible to receive food once a month.

Currently the pantry is open on Tuesday 9-11a & 2-4p, Wednesday 2-4p, and Friday 2-4p.  The food pantry relies on generous donations of cash, food and toiletries from neighbors, corporate donors and church congregations. Additional items are purchased from the Food Bank of Northern Indiana and, occasionally, local grocers.  The pantry also relies on the generous time of it’s volunteers including members of Sacred Heart Parish and neighborhood residents.

Fresh produce is available through partnership with Unity Gardens, a network of numerous gardens across the South Bend area. Anyone can visit a garden and pick ripe vegetables or fruits for free, and produce also is available directly from the pantry.  Follow this link: More information and locations of South Bend’s Unity Gardens.

Donations from neighborhood residents and businesses are always needed and welcome (non-perishable food items and toiletries) and can be dropped off at the pantry during the regular weekly hours.
