The Friendship Center invites you to its 50th Anniversary Celebration! Join us on Sunday, March 1, at 12:30 pm in the North Park Covenant Church Parlors (lower level) as we celebrate 50 years of providing healthy and nourishing food, warmth and compassion and, most important, friendship to our neighbors in need. We will be looking back on the history of the organization and featuring guest speakers from Feeding America and the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Our pantry began right here in the pastor’s office back in 1969, and we have sustained that commitment to our community ever since. Our programs, offerings, and service areas have grown over the years, but one thing has never changed: we are a place for people to come together and answer this call:
and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry
and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,
then your light will rise in the darkness,
and your night will become like the noonday.
– Isaiah 58:10
