Food Pantry

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. 

Upcoming Fundraiser

Taste of the Town 2015 will give a portion of the entrance fee to the Wheeling Township Food Pantry.  Enjoy an evening of great food and fun while donating to a worthy cause.  Click here for flyer with more information.


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.


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. We recently tripled the size of the pantry with donated funds and 40 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.
