Neighbors Helping Neighbors

The Township Food Pantry relies on donations from individuals, businesses, houses of worship, and community groups to keep our shelves well stocked. Donations can be for our pantry shelf wishlist or financial. No donation is too small, and all gifts are appreciated.


Our Food Pantry Wish List provides the latest update on items we need and donation guidelines. We ask that you kindly check product expiration dates before making a donation. If you would like to donate goods to the pantry, please phone Brian Leverenz, the Township Community Services Administrator, at 847-446-8203. Donations may be dropped off any weekday, 9AM-5PM. 


Complete the online form to donate via credit or debit card.

We ask that donation checks be made payable to the order of the New Trier Township Angel Fund, Inc. 

Please notate in the memo line that the donation is for the food pantry.
