Niles Township Food Pantry Foundation (501c3)

What We Do

Niles Township Food Pantry Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that supports the food purchases for the Niles Township Food Pantry. As a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization, donations to the Niles Township Food Pantry Foundation are tax deductible.

The Niles Township Food Pantry is operated for the benefit of township residents who are in need. It is our goal that no person goes hungry. The Niles Township pantry is located at 8341 Lockwood, Skokie, IL behind the Administration building at the south end of the complex.

Currently, the Food Pantry provides food at no cost to about 6,000 low-income individuals per month who reside in the communities of Niles Township. All monetary donations are allocated to purchasing food to replenish the pantry shelves. For every dollar donated four (4) meals will be purchased.

Through partnerships with the Greater Chicago Food Depository and contributions from area businesses, civic groups, and individuals to the Niles Township Food Pantry Foundation, the pantry is able to serve its clients.
