What is a Food Pantry?
Although sometimes used interchangeably, a food bank is not the same organization as a food pantry. Food banks, such as Northern Illinois Food Bank, use donations from food drives and partner organizations to build a food supply. From there, supplies are inventoried and distributed to organizations that provide food directly to families in need, like pop-up food pantries, homeless shelters, and soup kitchens. Food pantries and other consumer-facing organizations exist so people who live in Will County can have peace of mind knowing where their next meal will come from. Many of these organizations are no-referral, such as My Panty Express. You’re welcome to also receive non-food items such as apparel, toiletries, baby products, and more. Simply walk in, drive-thru, or use a mobile method to order free food.
