How often can I come to pick up food?

Neighbors and their families may visit our market once per week to receive food. You do not need to wait a full week between visits. (For example, if you visited on a Thursday one week, you could return on Tuesday the following week for food.)

What do I need to bring with me?

Please bring grocery bags or other items to carry your groceries home. If you are new to the pantry and have registered online, please bring a photo ID and your Client ID # which is provided to you when you register online. We will still process you at registration if you do not have these items.

Where can I park?

We have parking spaces around the building. Additional parking can be found in our overflow parking lot kitty-corner of the pantry. Staff and volunteers will be outside to help answer any questions and direct traffic. There is accessible parking located on the East side of the building.  View Parking Lots 

What time can I show up for food?

Food distribution begins at 10:00 AM on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Our parking lot attendants arrive at 9:00 AM to help direct traffic. Parking lot attendants will inform you when we are ready to begin distributing food.

Where are you located?

The pantry is located at 1110 Jericho Road in Aurora. We are West of the intersection of Jericho Road and Lake Street (Route 31).
