The North Park Friendship Center Food Pantry (NPFCFP) was the first recipient of a $25,000 Washington Square Health Foundation Food Pantry Initiative Grant in 2012. As a result of this grant, they were able to open a second site in Lincoln Square. We have just been informed that the NPFCFP will be expanding their services beginning in July as a result of being awarded a Kraft Feeding America Grant, which was written by a Spring intern. The Lincoln Square Friendship Center will expand its hours to be open a second day and will include social services assistance. Over time, it is a goal to extend this to North Park Friendship Center, as well. The Washington Square Health Foundation wishes to congratulate the North Park Friendship Center Food Pantry on this great news!
