Meeting our Community's Needs - Neighbor to Neighbor

PRC Pantry Impact

Last year, PRC families received 39,884 shopping carts of food.

Food Pantry

PRC's Food Pantry offers fresh produce, meats, dairy, canned goods, and household staples to our clients. During your visit you will be given a cart and encouraged to select the foods which are right for you and your family, rather than receiving a pre-packed box.

Información en Español sobre los servicios de PRC.


Food Pantry services are available to all residents of DuPage County. Each client household may receive food twice a month. The amount of food is dependent on family size and special needs.

How to Get Started

First time visitors to the Food Pantry are asked to complete a simple client interview and registration process. Learn about Becoming a Client or Registrarse como cliente de PRC. Especially note the documents you will need to bring on your first visit.

What to Expect

All clients are greeted by a Food Pantry volunteer who will answer questions, explain our process, and provide you with a cart. You are then free to choose the foods you want from the large selection available. Volunteers will help you with bagging the groceries and getting the food to your car.

What if I can’t come to PRC to get food?

Any person listed as a household member can come to PRC’s food pantries to pick up food as long as they have the household’s PRC card, a photo ID, and proof of residency (utility bill, rent stub, etc.).

If no one from your household is available to pick up food from PRC, you can designate an individual that you trust to do this for you. This individual must have a completed proxy form in order to pick up food for your household. 

The proxy form is available here in English and Spanish


Each month, the community joins People's Resource Center to fight hunger in DuPage.  On the third Wednesday of the month, participating restaurants Dine Away Hunger and donate 10% of their sales to the PRC Food Pantry. Dine out and a portion of your bill goes to purchase healthy food for hungry neighbors. To see upcoming dates and restaurants, click here.
