Since 1999, we've provided food security to our neighbors in need, as well as monetary assistance for housing, utilities, medical care/prescriptions, and more. Our Mission: To effectively distribute food and emergency assistance in Northwest DuPage through community and faith partnerships, collaborations, volunteer efforts, and ongoing fundraising. 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. Thank you to all who support our mission, allowing us to provide more than 2,100,000 million meals in 2017 to more than 15,000 people annually in our area who visit our pantries more than 27,000 times per year.
