I Need Assistance!
The Share Food Share Love Food Pantry is open for distribution on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Saturday mornings from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The Pantry is located at 3801 Madison Avenue in Brookfield, in the lower level of the Faith Lutheran Church building.
No income verification or proof of need is required to receive food, however, clients are required to complete a very simple registration upon arriving at the Pantry. Registration can be completed anytime the Pantry is open for distribution. Proof of residency is requested and clients are eligible to receive food once each calendar month. When coming to receive food, please bring your own bags or other containers to pack your items.
The Pantry currently serves residents of the villages of Brookfield, Countryside, Forest View, Hodgkins, Indian Head Park, LaGrange, LaGrange Highlands, LaGrange Park, Lyons, McCook, North Riverside, Riverside, Stickney, Summit and Western Springs. If you need assistance, but do not currently reside in our service area, you can come to the Share Food Share Love Food Pantry and we will provide you with food on a one-time only basis and also provide you with information on how to find food pantries that currently serve your area of residence. To search for other pantries, you can also go to the Greater Chicago Food Depository website by clicking here.
On distribution days, numbers are distributed to clients beginning approximately 30 minutes prior to the designated opening time and clients are served in order of the number they receive.
