Al Nahda created Salwa as a modest bread pantry to distribute pita to the community during the COVID pandemic. Since 2020 Salwa has grown into a successful free food service to those in need in Worth, Oak Lawn and adjacent neighborhoods. Salwa provides those facing food insecurity in our community with free healthy and balanced food packages bi-monthly. Many other food pantries provide services once a month or less, at Salwa we are dedicated to ensuring consistent healthy food for our families who need it!

Additionally Salwa creates community and strengthen’s our relations with all of our brothers and sisters accross the community by inviting participants to be involved in giving their time for our many other programs and serivces. Salwa works in tandem with our free clinic to provide comprehensive health services to our community at large! join us for our next community on the first saturday of March as a volunteer! You can register for the program at the al Nahda Center on distribution days!
