Donate Food

Every week we distribute food to 950 families. Your food donation will ensure that no one in our community goes hungry. Thank you for your generosity!

How to donate

Food donations can be dropped off at Aurora Food Pantry (1110 Jericho Road) between 8:00am and 3:00pm, Monday through Friday. Please come to the front door of the pantry and a staff member will direct you to one of our loading docks. (We’ll help you unload, so feel free to leave the food in your car!)
