WHO ARE THE PANTRY’S LEADERS
For the first quarter 2022, the Pantry served 864 client households, or about 2,800 individuals. This is a 25% increase over the same period last year. Our clients were provided with 33 tons of food, which equates to 55,000 meals at a retail value of $285,000. Each client continues to receive over $300 worth of groceries, every time they come to the Pantry.
The Pantry is now serving nearly 300 clients households per month. But, more work needs to be done with community outreach. So, we expect this number to grow even more during the year.
Many activities took place in 2021, and most of them are planned for this year. Please see the slides from Westchester Food Pantry’s January 6, 2022 Annual Meeting. Click HERE
We continue to make a difference!

The Pantry allows volunteers that are 16 years of age and older. But, if you are sick, sneezing, coughing or have been in close contact with someone who is or was recently sick, please do not come to the Pantry.
Due to the resurgence of the Covid-19 variant, the Pantry will be strictly following new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Cook County Department of Public Health. Masks are now required for all volunteers and clients, regardless of vaccination status. Fabric masks and disposable gloves are available. Safety is of the upmost importance while volunteering at the Pantry.
The Westchester Food Pantry serves as a resource throughout the year for those who are hungry and food insecure. Supported by the generous donations and work of our community – residents, organizations and businesses – we are able to supplement food needs in our Village and neighboring communities.
A community without hunger.
