Nourishing Hope Headquarters
Our New Headquarters
Our new headquarters at 1716 W. Hubbard St. will be instrumental as we grow to serve more people in a time of heightened food insecurity.
The location of the new 21,600-square-foot headquarters, at the corner of West Hubbard Street and North Hermitage Avenue, is significant to Nourishing Hope’s plans of building more partnerships with organizations — and ultimately serving more people — on the South and West Sides.
This facility is not a walk-in food pantry, but will serve as a food packing and sorting warehouse, administrative office space, and online market pick-up location. Specific dates and times are selected during registration.
What happens at this location?
Nourishing Hope’s new headquarters is its fourth and most center-city location. Between the two buildings on the property, it includes capacity for food storage, administrative offices, mental wellness offices and the online market program.
Twice a week at the site, Nourishing Hope will provide a drive-through distribution of food for people who order food through the online market program.
People can enter from Hermitage, drive between the two buildings during designated pick-up times and receive their groceries.
The new facility will allow us to grow our online market and home delivery services on the South and West Sides of Chicago, which have for years endured inequitable access to nutritious food.
Due to the pandemic and overall increased need throughout the city, we were bursting at the seams at our flagship Sheridan Market. By moving functions like development, marketing, human resources and finance to our new facility, we have more space at Sheridan for mental health and other supportive services.
The more centrally located site on Hubbard Street also provides a bigger space to grow our online market and home delivery programs to serve more people in need throughout the city.
Our New Mural
On the west-facing wall of our new headquarters, you’ll find a new community mural by Pilsen-based artist Pablo Serrano.
The vision contains thematic layers — the journey of food from the soil to people in need, the complex challenges of Chicago, the transformative power of community — bound together by bright yellow rays emanating from a yin-and-yang heart and mind at the center.
We’ll be partnering with trusted organizations already serving the South and West Sides who are interested in our online market, home delivery, or health and hope programs. We’ll also expand our home delivery program in communities that would benefit from our service. And as an online market pick-up site, the new location will appeal to those who live closer to West Town.
