Food Pantry food transfer volunteer
ELMWOOD PARK BIBLE CHURCH
The second and fourth Fridays of every month the pantry receives on average 4000 pounds of food products from the GCFD to aid our community in the battle against hunger. 4 volunteers are needed between 11 and 1 PM to move the food from the truck to the pantry area and stock shelves. Other duties may include rotating older stock into the pantry, breaking down boxes, amongst other tasks.
An ongoing commitment to this role appreciated.

Elmwood Park Community Church is uniquely positioned and located to have the maximum impact upon the Village of Elmwood Park for the glory of God through various ministries. Two service ministries have been established to aid anyone within the church, the Village of Elmwood Park and surrounding communities via the Food Pantry and Clothes Closet. Food and clothing will be provided to those in need through the financial and material donations of the church, the Greater Chicago Food Depository, other institutions and the community on an emergent basis and on regularly scheduled times. These services will be provided regardless of race, religion, sex or color.
Although the Elmwood Park Community Church has been active in the community for many years the Food Pantry and Clothes Closet have only been serving the community on a routine basis since December 2020. Presently we are serving over 40 households/100 individuals on a weekly basis in the pantry
