Wheeling Food Pantry
Wheeling, IL 60090
Details: In our first two years of operation we have distributed over 50,000 pounds of food. We are a 100% volunteer pantry. Our offices, utilities, overhead and storage facilities are donated. Because of these generous benefactors, we are able to use 100% of any cash donations for food and packaging. We are an agency of the Greater Chicago Food Depository where we are able to purchase food at a deep discount. Also, we are a 501c3 corporation. Therefore, in most cases, cash donations are tax deductible. Your donations will be used to purchase food when our supplies have diminished. The food will be distributed to those families of children who attend District 21 middle schools, Wheeling High School, and the residents of Wheeling. We are open 4 hours every weekday so that those in need can stop by for help. Both the Village of Wheeling and Omni Youth Services provide Resource Specialists, trained social workers, who are there to help those less fortunate. Our mission is to try to help those in need, in some way, with their financial, physical and/or emotional problems so that they may lead normal, self-sustaining independent lives. There are reasons behind why someone is hungry. It’s about more than food. Hours of Operation: Monday through Thursday - 1:00pm - 5:00pm, Friday - 1:00pm - 4:00pm
