Niles Township Food Pantry
Skokie, IL 60077
Details: People are surprised to learn that even in our “affluent” communities there are many people, young, elderly and in-between, who do not have the resources to feed themselves or their families adequately. That is why the Niles Township Food Pantry exists – to aid those who need food, especially on an emergency basis. We want to make sure that every person has the food they need to sustain themselves, so we are always seeking donations to help the over 3,500 individuals (on average) who use our pantry every month. With these bad economic times, the number of people who need the food pantry keeps increasing. This past holiday season, the Niles Township Food Pantry has supplied food to more than 5,500 individuals alone. Hours: Monday – Friday 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m., Tuesday - 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. – 3:45 p.m. and Evening 4:15 - 7:00 p.m., Friday - 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. – 3:45 p.m.
