There are more than 68,000 people in DuPage county who don’t know where their next meal is coming from. Many are ‘on the bubble’, having to choose between paying the rent or feeding their families. Oftentimes we fill a one-time need for a family – allowing them to fix a car or cover unexpected medical expenses and still put food on the table.

Our locally operated pantries allow us to serve our guests in their neighborhood, close to where they live. Our pantry coordinators and volunteers get to know our guests, providing a personal touch and creating a sense of community. A number of our pantry guests return to our pantries to volunteer– giving back to those who support them.

Neighborhood Food Pantries works with 30 area churches to operate 7 pantries throughout Northwest DuPage county. Local businesses and organizations provide tremendous support for our mission. Our food recovery partners provide fresh food and produce to our guests; our food collection partners hold local food drives for our pantries; and our corporate and organization partners and individual donors provide financial support, allowing us to purchase items from Northern Illinois Food Bank and to support our pantry infrastructure
