Article from the April Archer Heights Civic Association Newsletter.

The Greater Chicago Food Depository informed The Archer Heights Civic Asociation that a Model Pantry has been established for residents in Archer Heights who may be in need.

At the on-site food pantry residents of our neighborhood, both individuals and families in need of food assistance will be able to choose from a variety of fresh produce and shelf-stable items. The area covered by this food pantry is slightly different from our community’s boundary: North – Stevenson Expressway, South – 54th Street, East – Central Park Ave. (3600 West), and West – Knox (4600 West) but the actual Archer Heights boundary is Cicero Avenue – 4800 West.

The location of the pantry is in the Greater Chicago Food Depository – 4100 W. Ann Lurie Place (use the Keeler Avenue entrance) and will be open every Saturday starting March 8th from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM. Archer Heights residents will be allowed one visit per month and must bring proof of residency. For more information please call 773-247-FOOD.

  • This is very good information. Everybody in Archer Heights needs to pass this info around as some people are afraid or embarrassed to admit they need help. By spreading the word, people can anonymously go to the food pantry.

    Thank you AHG for posting this.

News for all neighborhoods re: new city ordinance

Just wanting to celebrate the passage of the city ordinance that now prohibits
any Chicago pet store from purchasing and selling 'puppy mill puppies'.
Such puppy mills are animal-abuse abominations-- barbaric and archaic-- their time
has come to end nation-wide. Glad to learn Chicago has joined the humane 'right-thing-to-do' in seeing to their demise. The following article link explains more:

Excerpt--
"Pet stores in Chicago will be barred from selling dogs, cats and rabbits unless the animals come from shelters."

There are other local Chicago-land pet-stores that do not now (and/or never have) sold such bred animals-- it is fitting to appreciate and support such local businesses who sell pet-supplies only.

And remember, if you want (and can be fully responsible for a pet) there are
so many local and nationwide shelters from which to adopt animals who are just as loving and worthy of our compassionate care and companionship.

    I never paid/bought a pet. All the birds and dogs I had were sort of hand me downs. or a sort of gift from folks that could no longer Keep them.
