How you can help your local food pantry during coronavirus pandemic.

The New Trier Township Food Pantry is serving more families and individuals in our community than normal given the current economic climate, and without churches and schools collecting items to contribute to the pantry’s stock of groceries, they are in great need of more donations.

Their list of most urgently needed items at the moment is: Canned Fruit , Cereal, Pasta Sauce, Peanut Butter, Canned Veggies  Cooking Oil, Condiments, Laundry Detergent (smaller sizes)

In lieu of our regular pantry collections on the first Sunday of each month, we invite you to support the Pantry in one of the following ways:
1) send a check made out to “New Trier Township Angel Fund” to the Pantry at 739 Elm Street, Winnetka, IL 60093
2)  Order/shop from the list below of “most needed items,” and either have delivered to or drop off on the porch of one of our committee members:
 You can place an order through a grocery delivery service to come directly to a committee member or do curb-side pickup for your items and leave them on a committee member’s porch.  Please let us know if you will be sending a delivery to us!  The Pantry is only accepting donations through pre-arranged drop-offs, and it is easier/safer for their staff if we collect our donations once every week or two and schedule one large drop-off.
Many of us are looking for ways to help, and feeding those in our own community who are in need is a wonderful way for us to shine the light of Christ for those for whom these times are particularly challenging. Thank you for your support of this vital ministry!

The Pantry is an important service for residents whose incomes do not cover all their needs. Its shelves offer a variety of canned and packaged food, useful paper goods, and toiletry items for all ages. A freezer is stocked with vegetables, meat, poultry, and nutritious frozen dinners.

Why the NT Food Pantry?

The Food Pantry is open to qualified residents of New Trier Township, which includes the villages of Wilmette, Kenilworth, Winnetka, and Glencoe, plus portions of Glenview and Northfield. In order to qualify for assistance, a social worker meets with the individual making the request and determines if they are eligible for assistance. At that time, the social worker can also inform the individual of other assistance programs.

How can you help:

1) Donate:

Whether it is a few cans from your pantry or you picked up a few extra items while doing your personal grocery shopping, individual donations are always welcome.
