You can make a Difference

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Financial donations are greatly appreciated – every dollar makes a difference!

We are in great need of shelf stable food items.

For no-contact food donation drop off, Call 630.469.6988 from the parking lot and we will come outside and retrieve your food donation.

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

Ways to Participate...

Food Drives

Anyone can have a Food drive

Having your own food drive for the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry is a great way to help.  Each year, many organizations organize fun and creative events to collect food for our Pantry, for their birthday party, children ask for food donations instead of birthday present … a teacher eating a cicada when school kids collected food to the ceiling in the gymnasium … a Principal dying his hair green when the students met their goals for their annual food collection … pizza parties for the most food collected in a classroom.  The ideas are endless!

Contact us at (630) 469-6988 to discuss how you, your school or your organization can help our Food Pantry with a food drive event!

Volunteer

We simply could not do what we do without the unwavering support of our over 400 volunteers who work tirelessly 5 days per week to help us MAKE HUNGER HISTORY in our community.  Stop by … come see us in action … We would love to have you part of our volunteer team!
