Thanks for helping us provide over 32,000 meals in 2017 to our neighbors in need!  May we all find ways, big and small, to continue strengthening our communities in 2018.  

Here’s What Our Customers Say:

“I came to First Slice on the recommendation of Nadene, the owner Of Green Sky (Real cool stuff by the way) and next door neighbor of 1st Slice. The place has a fresh friendly neighborhood feel.  I got a few healthy looking vegetarian salad type items to go, and the black bean soup (trying to follow Dr.’s orders on not eating too much meat.

“They were all really good especially the soup. I have to fess up that you can’t go to a pie cafe and NOT get pie. . . right?”

“First off, the staff here is crazy friendly.  The decor has a very bright, cheerful vibe to it.  On top of that, the selection of food, coffee drinks and pie (mmm) can’t be beat.”

“We’ve driven by this place so many times but regret not stopping sooner. This place in incredibly charming and the food was wonderful. The prices are very low considering the  quality and size of the portions!”

Special Events: Coming soon

Come on down to the Ravenswood First Slice – inside the Lillstreet Arts Center – on Friday, April 7, 2017 for our 10th Annual Empty Bowls!  

Time:  5-8pm

Place: 4401 N. Ravenswood

Purpose:  Help feed folks in need while feeding yourself!  For a $25 donation you get to select a handmade ceramic bowl and fill it with soup as many times as you want that evening.  At the end of the night, your bowl goes home with you as a reminder of all the empty bowls you’re helping First Slice to fill.  Soup choices are: Santa Fe Chicken Chipotle, French Lentil with Kale, and Ginger Carrot.  Eat one or eat them all!  All proceeds will help support First Slice’s Outreach Program, which currently supplies over 600 meals a week to our neighbors who struggle with hunger & homelessness.

Want to make the evening even MORE fun?  Sign up for a volunteer shift here!
