The Hagerty Center,
which was originally constructed to serve as a
convent and presently houses The Sisters of Our
Lady of La Salette, now functions most notably
as the site for the St. Mary of the Lake Food
Pantry, operated by the St. Mary of the Lake
conference of the St. Vincent de Paul Society in
partnership with our sharing parish, Immaculate
Conception (Talcott Ave.).
Every two weeks pantry staff
pick up a large amount of food for our pantry.
That food is distributed to the needy in our
parish on Wednesday and Friday Mornings.
The conference also
works with the
Food Depository of
Greater Chicago to supply food to
feed the hungry of this neighborhood.
Weekly trips are made by Andres and Juan to the
depository. For more information about the
Hagerty Center Food Pantry, call Soccoro
