Food:The Food Pantry at People’s Resource Center provides fresh food and grocery staples to residents of DuPage County. Last year, nearly 8,000 families used the PRC Food Pantry, so we rely on the community to help keep our shelves filled. If you'd like to make a donation, we accept food at the following times:
PRC Wheaton, 201 S. Naperville Road
- 8am-4pm Monday through Friday
- 9am to 11:30 Saturday
PRC Southeast, 649 Blackhawk, Westmont
- 8am - 4pm Monday through Wednesday
- 8am - 7pm Thursday
- 8am - 11am Saturday
We accept food at PRC Southeast. We do not accept clothing, computers, household items or electronic equipment at our Westmont location.
People's Resource Center's Food Pantries in Wheaton and Westmont are a lifeline to DuPage families who are struggling to make ends meet. Without the efforts of good neighbors like you, it wouldn't be possible to keep our food pantry shelves stocked with enough nutritious food to meet the need.
Find out how you can help by taking a look at our "toolkit" of resources for food drives. It will give you ideas on how to help and encourage others at your congregation, workplace, neighborhood, school or service club to get involved. All the documents are in .pdf format and print on 8 1/2" by 11" pieces of paper. Thank you!
