Glen Ellyn Food Pantry
We are a non-profit ecumenical endeavor of Glen Ellyn churches, working together since 1979 to help fight hunger.
We are passionate about helping those experiencing food insecurity … passionate about making sure those who have fallen on bad times receive proper nutrition … passionate about ensuring children have access to healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner so they can do their best at school … and simply put, passionate about carrying out God’s work in our community.
For over 40 years, the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry has been distributing groceries to our neighbors in need, and most recently, distribute 1,000,000 pounds of fresh, nutritious, and sustainable meals to 32,000 individuals. Staff, Board Members and volunteers alike work 5 days per week inside Grace Lutheran Church, where our Pantry is housed, assisting guests who have lost his/her job, are disabled and cannot work, are senior citizens receiving a fixed income, or simply have difficulty making ends meet for any number of reasons. We are there for these neighbors. We are there to be the smile in their day that they may not otherwise experience. We laugh with them; we cry with them. Our guests mean as much to us as we do to them.
At the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry, we feel blessed to have the opportunity, means and support to provide nutritious food to our hungry neighbors, and work towards Making Hunger History in Glen Ellyn and surrounding communities.
Thank you for being a part of our Food Pantry Family!
