This is a client contact role in a COVID compliant manner.
The model of pantry employed at EPCFP is one in which the guests "shop" the food items available. The volunteers are needed to guide the flow of the guests, answer questions and when supplies are available assure that the shelves are filled. Volunteers may be asked to assist guests getting food to their cars.

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
