The Township Board of Trustees established the DuPage Township Food Pantry to supplement the nutritional needs of the Township’s residents. The Food Pantry has grown from serving approximately 60 families a month to over 1000 families a month. Most of the food in the pantry comes from the support of the Township, the Northern Illinois Food Bank, and cooperating supermarkets. Individuals also make donations, and food drives are sponsored by schools, churches, civic groups, and businesses. The Food Pantry is available to DuPage Township families experiencing food insecurity. Residents may come to the pantry twice a month and receive additional items for planning meals for their families.
