Holiday Food and Coat Drive
November 23–December 9, 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.

This holiday season, 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.

Food Needs:

  • Canned fruit
  • Cereal
  • Hamburger Helper
  • Jelly
  • Mac & Cheese
  • Mashed potato
  • Pancake Mix
  • Syrup

Winter Needs:

  • Coats - all sizes
  • Hats
  • Gloves
  • Scarves

Important Notes:

  • 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.

List is also available under "My Resources" on the Christ Church Connect app.

Butterfield Drop-off: Drop items off at Door 1. 

Oak Brook Drop-off: Drop items off items at any of the tables by Doors 1, 2 or 17. 

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.
