We believe no one should be hungry, and because we know there is enough nutritious food to provide every meal, every day for every neighbor in Northern Illinois, we want to ensure that anyone in need has access to the nutritious groceries they need in a way that fits their schedule and lifestyle. That’s why we created My Pantry Express—your online source for groceries when in need.
My Pantry Express is an online food pantry developed and operated by Northern Illinois Food Bank in collaboration with community partners. Individuals in need select a pick-up time and location, order groceries and then pick up their order at one of our convenient locations. Pick-ups are available at the following select locations.

Courtney Oakes, Sr. Program Manager- More information coming soon!
Alex Veague has been at Northern Illinois Food Bank since May 2019 as the My Pantry Express Senior Program Coordinator. Although she oversees many of the operational and website needs of the program, she will create graphs and charts just as soon as she will lend a hand in the warehouse. When she’s not running around with My Pantry Express, Alex is usually at home with her dog or out and about looking for her next favorite book. As a neuroscientist, though, watch out! If you catch her reading a science journal, she just might talk your ear off about the latest and greatest in neuroscience and psychobiology.
Outreach Coordinator- Coming Soon!
