Locate 900 Northern Illinois food pantries or soup kitchens using the interactive map below. Refer to the contact information to confirm hours of distribution and residency requirements.
Our local food pantries and mobile markets provide free groceries and food to those in need. Pantries offer perishable and non-perishable foods that you can choose from based on your dietary needs. You do not need to have a referral, and income is not a factor when receiving free food from our local food pantries. If you have questions about the model of distribution your pantry is offering, or specific dietary needs or restrictions, a pantry would be happy to speak with you – just call ahead of time!
