Food Center at Near West (St. Pat's) Weekly Service Program

Tuesdays 4:10- 6:45 pm  

(Resumes January 14, 2014)

The Food Center at Near West, affectionately referred to by BW students as "St. Pat's,"  offers an evening meal three days per week as well as a food pantry and referral services for families and individuals in need.  BW students provide a special opportunity for families with children to relax away from the rest of the crowd during the evening meal on Tuesdays.  Our group opens a family room on the second floor of the center, where they play games or simply talk with families and children before serving the meal.  Students are welcome and encouraged to eat along with the families.
