“The Glen Ellyn Food Pantry Glen Is experiencing many of the challenges that other organizations are with the COVID-19 virus epidemic. As many people are losing work hours and income, the food pantry is experiencing more demand and is having a higher difficulty obtaining food. We are doing our best to serve everyone as quickly and efficiently as possible. As such, we have instituted a drive-through process so volunteers and clients alike will avoid entering the Food Pantry. Clients will drive up and receive a pre-bagged package of shelf stable food items, dairy and produce.

HOW CAN YOU HELP? We are in great need of shelf stable food items such as Mac and cheese, canned fruits, veggies and tomatoes, dry pasta and beans, etc. Your donation would act in much the same way. Come to the food pantry and just drive into the parking lot… Call 630.469.6988 ... And we will come outside and retrieve your food so you too will be able to avoid entering inside the building. we are accepting donations between 9 am - 1 pm Monday through Friday. Should you need other drop off arrangements, please give us a call, 630.469.8668.

We thank you for your support during this difficult time… God bless and stay healthy!

For 35 years we have been distributing groceries to our neighbors in need.  We are passionate about helping those who have fallen on hard times.








We are passionate about helping those experiencing food insecurity...passionate about making sure those who have fallen on hard times receive proper nutrition...passionate about ensuring children have access to a healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner so they can do their best at school...and simply put, passionate about carrying out God's work in our community.
