RCS operates a monthly Mobile Pantry every second Saturday of the month. (Click here for a schedule.) It is open while supplies last starting at 9:00am. The Mobile Pantry is located in front of Ravenswood Elementary School at the corner of Montrose and Paulina in Chicago. Participants need not have a student enrolled at Ravenswood School.

The Mobile Pantry offers a selection of fresh fruits and vegetables, bread and non-perishable food items in a farmer's market-style atmosphere at no charge to families in need of food assistance. This program is made possible through two partnerships: one with Ravenswood School who provides the space and one with the Greater Chicago Food Depository, who provides the produce-heavy truck load of food that is distributed each month.
