Get Food Assistance Using My Pantry Express

No one should be hungry. We want to ensure that anyone who needs it has free access to the nutritious groceries.

My Pantry Express is an online food pantry developed and operated by Northern Illinois Food Bank in collaboration with community partners.   Individuals interested in shopping with My Pantry Express can visit our website to place an online grocery order for pick up at no charge. It’s easy:

  1. Visit and click Begin Order.
  2. Click the check box at the top of the page to confirm you need food assistance.
  3. View the calendar to find a location and start shopping.
  4. Your food will be boxed and available for pick up at your chosen time and location.

Right now we are piloting this program in select locations across Joliet, Rockford, DeKalb, and the Waukegan and North Chicago area.
