Easter Food Drive 2023
Food insecurity in the United States continues to set new record highs. Coping with lost income, many families in our community are struggling to pay rent and put food on the table. Our food pantry has seen a 40% increase in distribution this year.
You can help by providing vital food and essentials, which supplies our Christ Church Food Pantry ministry. In addition to ministering to clients' physical needs each month, the Food Pantry team provides spiritual and emotional support by distributing Bibles and other Christian materials, as well as praying personally with the clients.
Butterfield Curbside Drop-off: Our collections are ongoing. You are welcome to drop items off at your convenience at our Butterfield campus – Door 1. As you enter our parking lot, you will see a cart near the entrance to the building that is clearly marked “Thank you for your donations.” Please leave all items on the cart or in a box beside the cart so volunteers can pick them up and sort them at regular intervals throughout the day.
Oak Brook Drop-off: Drop items off in the Domestic Missions box in the hallway by Door 17 (the entrance nearest Fellowship Hall and the Commons).
Ready to Help? Shop for items from the lists below to serve God's people in need.
- Canned beans
- Granola Bars

- Mashed Potato or Stuffing
- Pancake Mix
- Pasta (Regular)

List is also available under "My Resources" on the Christ Church Connect app.
- Please try to avoid glass items.
- When possible, please choose plastic containers.
- Please try to choose items in ‘average’ sizes rather than bulk sizes.
- Smaller sizes help us distribute food more evenly between families. A couple of average-sized jars of peanut butter are better than one giant jar.
Want to Give Regularly?
Ongoing giving allows the food pantry to have a steady flow of provisions throughout the year instead of rationing during those times of abundance to prepare for times of lack. If you are called to give on an ongoing basis, donate through the following links
The Christ Church Food Pantry Team partners with the Salvation Army Food Pantry to meet the nutritional, clothing and spiritual needs of people in the DuPage and Western Cook Counties.
