Order Free Groceries &
Get Free Delivery Too!


My Pantry Express

My Pantry Express DoorDash 

Visiting a food pantry isn’t an option – for whatever reason. That’s why Northern Illinois Food Bank created My Pantry Express, an easy-to-use online order service for FREE GROCERIES.

And it just got even more convenient! The Food Bank has partnered with DoorDash, an online food delivery service, to bring free groceries to your door at no cost to you!

Can I get my free groceries delivered?

During this pilot program, delivery is only available to residents within a 10-mile radius of the Northern Illinois Food Bank’s North Suburban Center. We hope to extend this program to our other service areas in the future. Communities within the pilot radius include: Grayslake, Gurnee, North Chicago, Waukegan and Winthrop Harbor.

Park City, IL 60085


What if I don’t live in the free delivery area?

You can still order free groceries and choose the location to pick them up. We’re hoping to expand our free delivery service in the future.


What ID or qualifications do I need to get free groceries?

No ID is required. No income or residency restrictions apply. For free delivery, you will need to provide a verifiable address to DoorDash.


Can I choose which groceries I want and need?

Yes! My Pantry Express is online and easy to use. Go to MyPantryExpress.org, and select the groceries you want. At checkout you’ll choose a pick-up option or free delivery if available.
