Blessing Bench Food Pantry
Joliet, IL 60432
Details: The Blessing Bench Food Pantry serves qualifying persons who are food insecure, living within our designated service area, with supplemental groceries. The pantry is an agency of the Northern Illinois Food Bank. The pantry is an outreach ministry of the First and Santa Cruz Lutheran Church, an urban parish in the heart of Joliet. Established in 1998, the pantry began on a spare church bench from which surplus non-perishable food products were distributed. As time passed, distribution grew from canned goods and boxed foods to include frozen meat, fresh dairy and vegetables. Today, we serve an average of 70 families on distribution days. We receive donations from The Northern Illinois Food Bank as well as partner affiliates. Affiliates include congregations, schools, service clubs, farmers, individual families and businesses. As our program expands, we look forward to partnering with other community agencies so that we may educate area residents about other health and wellness resources available to them.

We serve approximately 350+ families/1250+ people each month. Clients are welcome to visit our pantry once every thirty days. We distribute approximately 20,000 lbs. of food per month. Congregational donations make it possible to purchase food from NIFB twice a month. We are in need of corporate and foundational donations to keep our program going. We have established partnerships with the Jewel-Osco at Route 59 and Caton Farm Road in Plainfield, IL and rely on our volunteers to pick up these food donations.
