Food Pantry

The DuPage Township Food Pantry was established by the Township Board of Trustees to supplement the needs of the Township’s residents. In recent years, the Food Panty has grown from serving approximately 60 families a month to now serving over 1000 families a month. Most of the food in the pantry comes from the support of the Township as well as the Northern Illinois Food Bank. Donations are also made by individuals and food drives sponsored by schools, churches, civic groups, and businesses. Food drives are always needed to keep our shelves stocked, but each and every individual donation adds up. This enables us to fulfill our mission. The Food Pantry is available to DuPage Township families who are experiencing a food crisis. Residents may come to the pantry twice a month and receive a supplement for planning meals for their families.
