About Us

Our Mission

Roselle Community Food Pantry’s mission is to end hunger in the communities we serve.

We believe food is a basic human right, and we believe we are called to collect and distribute food to those in need in our communities. We also believe that the quality of food is important. This pantry is not just stocked with canned goods – we have bread, fresh fruits, and vegetables, dairy, meat, and personal hygiene items. Well-rounded nutrition and daily care are paramount to your and your family’s personal health.

There is no shame in being a recipient of Food Pantry Services – only the JOY of receiving and the JOY of sharing.

For more information about becoming a client, volunteering, donating, or being part of our pantry food recovery network – please contact Vicki Johnson, Roselle Community Food Pantry, Executive Director at 630-529- 1309 ext-5 or email her.


The food pantry is open to all current Roselle, Bloomingdale, and Medinah residents with driver’s license/state identification and current utility/cable bill. No exceptions. This information must be presented at each pantry visit.

There are no income requirements.

Please call for an appointment.

Only one person per address may register (regardless of the number of family members living there).

Clients may receive pantry services once a month.

If you would like to volunteer for the food pantry, there are many opportunities to serve. Some current volunteer opportunities:

  • Pick-up food donations from our restaurant partners
  • Sort and inventory food donations
  • Work on pantry days filling client orders or carrying orders to client vehicles
  • Clean-up and pantry maintenance


Food donations and food drives are deeply appreciated. In addition, the operations of a food pantry require more than just food donations. There are many other expenses associated with the pantry: Gas and insurance for food recovery vehicles, purchase of commercial grade refrigerators and freezers, electricity and janitorial costs and more, space rental, and so much more. Monetary donations are vital to our mission and deeply appreciated.

Neighboring Pantries

Because we have established a strong food recovery program, through the Northern Illinois Food Bank – we are able to reallocate some of our food donations to other pantries. The Roselle Community Food Pantry reallocates donated food to local area pantries – thus widening our impact beyond our client service area.
