Hunger Affects All of Us

In Evergreen Park, 1 in 5 of our neighbors experiences food insecurity.

Our mission, as a community supported resource, is to dedicate ourselves to eliminating hunger among Evergreen Park residents and supporting them with emergency assistance in times of critical need.

Our vision is for everyone in Evergreen Park to have the food they need to thrive.

We believe access to nutritious food is a basic human right. We are committed to responding to the needs of our community through food distribution and emergency financial assistance.

Words From Our Patrons and Volunteers

"I didn’t realize how much need there was for the food pantry in EP until I started volunteering. “Working” at the pantry is one way to help people in my community on a regular basis."

The Village Pantry Coalition collects basic information upon a resident's first visit to the pantry. This information, which is required per the terms of our contractual agreement with the Greater Chicago Food Depository, is kept confidential and aids us in fulfilling our non profit's 501c3 reporting requirements.
