Financial Support

Our ultimate goal is simple … to serve food to all who visit our Pantry, and to provide healthy and nutritious options for our guests. No matter how hard we work to expand our food sources, our shelves are still emptied each and every week. The reality is the demand for food assistance does not decrease. There are still families that go hungry each and every day. For this, we need your help!

The Glen Ellyn Food Pantry purchases food and personal care items weekly, including fresh milk, eggs, and yogurt, through the Northern Illinois Food Bank at a greatly reduced cost which allows us to make the most of every dollar we receive. This supplements the donations of food received weekly from our retail partners and community. We work very hard to make sure every donation is utilized to its fullest to benefit our clients.

Last year, our Pantry distributed 700,000 pounds of food and served 33,000 individuals. This year is looking to experience the same demand from our neighbors experiencing food insecurity. We rely on support from our member churches, individuals, community organizations and local businesses to meet this need.

Together, we can make this happen!
