The Wheeling Township Food Pantry is stocked by donations from individuals, families, businesses, and organizations in our community. We offer our sincere thanks to all who have been so generous in helping to make the food pantry available to those in need. 


Donations

The Food Pantry is stocked by donations received from the community. Wheeling Township residents who need food due to financial difficulties, or who are in the process of applying for DHS Food Stamps, may use the pantry. Please call 847-259-7730 for more information and an appointment.

Volunteers

With the exception of a slight cost for a staff person overseeing the pantry, Wheeling Township's Food Pantry is funded almost entirely with donations from the community -- food items and cash donations are received regularly. Forty dedicated, hard working volunteers sort the food, keep the shelves stocked, and guide residents through the client choice shopping process. Visit our "Volunteer" site for information on various volunteer opportunities.
