Homebound seniors and disabled adults can be particularly vulnerable to hunger due to health and mobility issues. For those unable to visit our Pantry themselves. We collaborate with Oak Park Township and Thresholds to make referrals and deliver groceries to these neighbors in Oak Park, River Forest and a portion of Austin.
Every month, participants receive approximately 40 pounds of food, including eggs, meat, fresh produce, and a variety of grocery items tailored to their specific dietary needs. Participants are called each month to select their own groceries, which are then delivered to their home by volunteers.
Home Delivery usually takes place on the first Tuesday and Wednesday of every month (These dates can change depending on logistical needs).
