The St Nicholas Food Pantry is now open the first, third, and fourth Wednesday of the month from 430pm to 630pm. We’re grateful for the assistance we get with food donations from other area repositories, and also from area food service companies. We’re also thankful for the gift of time and care from our group of volunteers, who sort cans and greet guests.
Demand for food across the Chicago suburbs is on the rise, placing more of a burden on local and regional food providers trying to do more with less.
Many food banks and pantries dependent on donations to stock shelves and buy groceries are barely getting by, while others are expanding to reach more hungry mouths.
