St. John Lutheran Church Food Pantry (stjohnfood.org) is looking for volunteers to help at our growing pantry. We are open Tues (12:30-2:30pm), Thurs (9-11am), and Sat (9-11am). Volunteers help in all capacities of the pantry and have direct client interaction. Shifts begin a half hour before the pantry opens and end a half hour after we close. Volunteer for a few hours a month, or a few hours a week, it's up to you!
Be a part of this growing and friendly program that is making a huge difference in the community. In 2018, this pantry served 38,000+ people!

About St. John Lutheran Church Food Pantry
2650 Plainfield Road, Joliet, IL 60435, US
St. John Lutheran Church Food Pantry's mission is to serve the hungry in our community. We believe that serving clients with dignity and grace is just as important as the food we give.
We are a partner agency of the Northern Illinois Food Bank (NIFB) and a contracted State of Illinois Emergency Food Pantry (EFP).
Our pantry is 100% volunteer run and serves approximately 800 families each month, which amounts to 2,700-3,000 individual family members.
We serve all who are hungry and do not exclude based on a client's zip code, county, or school district. Clients may visit our pantry once every twenty-one days.
Community volunteers unload weekly food deliveries on Wednesdays and then distribute it on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Donations make it possible for us to purchase food from Northern Illinois Food Bank.
We have established partnerships with the Jewel-Osco on Route 59 and Caton Farm Road in Plainfield, IL and across the street at Fresh Thyme in Joliet, and rely on our volunteers to pick up these food donations on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
We are run 100% by donations and gifts. Visit stjohnfood.org to learn more about us.
We'll work with your schedule.
