Food Donations account for 48% of the food that is distributed to the monthly 1,400 families who rely on the Food Pantry.
Thank you so much for donating food to Oak Park River Forest Food Pantry, now a program of Beyond Hunger. You can drop off all donations during open hours on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday between 8:30 AM and 5:00 PM. Please do not drop off items on Wednesdays and Saturdays as we are busy serving clients. In the parking lot behind the church, there is a window marked for donations. Knock on our door or ring the bell and a pantry staff member will help you with your donation.
For large donations (especially a food drive), or to schedule an after-hours donation, please contact Ricardo.
Oak Park River Forest Food Pantry distributes over 17,000 lbs of food each week to our neighbors in need and we couldn't do it without the support of our community. No matter if you have hundreds of pounds of food from your drive or just a few bags of groceries, we appreciate your donation. Together we can make a difference!
