COVID-19 Update 4/3/2020, 9:00AM: We are committed to continuing My Pantry Express as a resource during this difficult time, and to do so we need to need to make some temporary changes to follow the recommended guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Beginning the week of April 6, 2020, we are temporarily stopping our Goodwill DeKalb pick-up. Please be careful when choosing your pick-up time as we will be making additional times and dates available in order to better support our community. 

For everyone's safety, please leave space in the trunk/tailgate/rear hatch of your car for your groceries to help us maintain social distancing.

We are temporarily changing our shopping list to a pre-packed box of shelf-stable items.  This will be temporary and we will communicate when we are able to revert to the usual ordering choices.

  • If you are feeling ill, especially with a fever or cough, please stay home.
  • If you are not able to pick up you order, you can have someone who is not ill pick up for you, they will need your account or order number.
  • Please check on your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc. and offer to pick up their order if they are NOT able to. We need community support to better support our community, now more than ever.
