About The Pantry

The Northfield Township Food Pantry was started close to 50 years ago to assist Township residents who are unable to provide enough food for themselves and their families.

In April 2003, the Pantry became a 501c3 organization and an agency of the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Today, many hundreds of Township families are eligible to visit the Pantry to receive perishable and non-perishable food items and grocery store cards.

No tax dollars are used to supply the Pantry. The Pantry is sustained entirely by residents, civic organizations, schools, businesses and the faith community who generously donate food items, grocery store cards and cash.

The Pantry's mission is simple: Hunger is Unacceptable in Our Community.
