Our Goals & Activities
  • Collect and distribute quantities of healthful and nutritious food to area families at our food pantry in Crest Hill, other food pantries and homeless shelters in the Greater Chicago Area. We are sorry but we are not able to deliver food to individual families at this time.
  • Offer food in response to emergency referrals from the area crisis hotline, township office, and local police department.
  • Our Thursday A.M. our drive through Crest Hill Food Pantry donates a banana box (about 40 lbs) of various healthful food items to approximately 260 qualifying families weekly. The need is growing as many call each week who have never found themselves in need of a pantry before.
  • Persons far from our area benefit from our food hotline toll free referral service to find pantries in their area: 815-730-9567
  • Volunteer and Community Service hours may be scheduled by calling 815-730-9567. You will receive paper work as proof of hours served. We cannot complete our goals and activities without you!
