PRC's Food Pantry offers fresh produce, meats, dairy, canned goods, and household staples to our clients. During your visit you will be given a cart and encouraged to select the foods which are right for you and your family, rather than receiving a pre-packed box.
Food Pantry services are available to all residents of DuPage County. Each client household may receive food twice a month. The amount of food is dependent on family size and special needs.
How to Get Started
First time visitors to the Food Pantry are asked to complete a simple client interview and registration process. Learn about Becoming a Client. Especially note the documents you will need to bring on your first visit.
What to Expect
All clients are greeted by a Food Pantry volunteer who will answer questions, explain our process, and provide you with a cart. You are then free to choose the foods you want from the large selection available. Volunteers will help you with bagging the groceries and getting the food to your car.

What if I can’t come to PRC to get food?
Any person listed as a household member can come to PRC’s food pantries to pick up food as long as they have the household’s PRC card, a photo ID, and proof of residency (utility bill, rent stub, etc.).
If no one from your household is available to pick up food from PRC, you can designate an individual that you trust to do this for you. This individual must have a completed proxy form in order to pick up food for your household.
Cooking demonstrations are frequently offered through the People's Resource Center food pantries. Check out Upcoming Events to find out if a cooking demo is coming up soon.
