Hunger is a problem in our community. We can help.

The Westchester Food Pantry serves as a resource throughout the year for those who are hungry and food insecure. Supported by the generous donations of our community residents and businesses, we are able to supplement food needs in our Village and neighboring communities.

Receive Food

All clients requesting food from the Westchester Food Pantry must provide a current photo ID (driver’s license, state ID card, etc.) that shows an address in our service area.  If the address on the photo ID is not in our service area, then the client must provide proof of residence (current utility bill, a letter from landlord, etc.).

We are proud to serve clients living in the following communities:

  • Bellwood (60104)
  • Berkeley (60163)
  • Broadview (60155)
  • Hillside (60162)
  • La Grange Park (60526)
  • Westchester (60154)
  • Western Springs (60558)

Location

Westchester Village Hall
10300 Roosevelt Road
Westchester, IL

Please enter through the Community Room door on the east side of the building (across from the Post Office). Food will no longer be given out at the Westchester Village Hall front desk.

Hours

Every Friday night from 5:30—7:30pm.

Volunteer

If you can make this commitment, please email us at WestchesterFoodPantry@gmail.com.

Client Service: Our pantry is open every Friday evening. We need more volunteers for client service. Volunteer shifts are 5-8pm, and we ask that volunteers commit to one Friday each month.  

Set-Up Crew: Before we serve clients on Friday evenings, a crew comes in on Friday afternoon to set up. Just like the client service crews, we ask that we ask that volunteers commit to one Friday each month.
