Get Food

Get Food

All clients receive eggs, milk, cheese, produce, frozen meat, and non-perishable food items. Clients may also choose from a variety of bread, bakery and condiments. Client services are provided to eligible households one time within a calendar month.

We strive to provide food for a well-balanced diet, although we recognize that our food is only meant to supplement, not provide all household needs for the month. In addition to those basic needs, we also supply personal care items, paper goods and cleaning supplies, when available.

The Pantry serves residents of the DuPage County area who meet the following Federal Income Guidelines. These guidelines are issued annually, and vary depending on the number of people in the household. For more information about eligibility for our programs:
