NAHN is a non-profit association of food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and social service agencies working to alleviate hunger on the Northside of Chicago. We are an IRS designated 501C3 nonprofit organization. The network is open to all agencies committed to easing hunger in the city north of Division Street and east of Harlem Avenue.


NAHN is comprised of a Governing Board of Officers and Member Agencies. The Governing Board is comprised of a President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer that serve 2-year terms. These “officers” represent member agencies and have decided to take a leadership role in the Network. These roles are on a voluntary basis and individuals are voted on by member agency representatives.


Member Agencies are comprised of Benefits Members and Members at Large. Benefits Members pay annual dues and receive access to potential funding and/or programming opportunities. Members at Large attend Network meetings and have expressed interest in receiving informational resources from the Network. More information on membership can be found here (can you link “here” to the “Become a Member” link found under the “Get Involved” tab).


All members are encouraged to attend Network Meetings, engage in resource sharing & communications amongst members, work on a committee and support our Strategic Plan.
