Christ Church Team Supports Families with Food, Clothing, Resources

In 2004 Christ Church created a food pantry team because there were no Saturday food pantries located in eastern DuPage County. The only one in the county was in Wheaton, which created a logistics issue for people with transportation difficulties and who needed to work during the pantry hours.

Recognizing this community need, volunteers with Christ Church in Oak Brook received training on how to operate a food pantry from the People’s Resource Center, then in partnership with the Salvation Army, set out to help as many people as they could, leading to more than 60,000 people being served with food, clothing and other resources.
