Westchester Food Pantry

September 2022 Service for the WFP

The Westchester Food Pantry is located at 1938 S. Mannheim Road, Westchester. On Wednesdays and Saturdays, volunteers must park at the village parking lot at the northeast corner of Balmoral and Mannheim. Do NOT park in the Pantry parking lot on Wednesdays 4-7pm or Saturdays 8:30-11:30am.

Safety protocols still in effect:

  • Volunteers and clients are strongly encouraged to wear masks.  
  • Do not volunteer if you feel sick or have been in close proximity with someone who feels sick.
  • Volunteers must be at least 10 years old. Kids age 10-11 can volunteer WITH a parent or guardian; kids age 12 and older can volunteer with a parent or guardian's permission.  

There are several volunteer options available: 

GCFD receiving crew, 8am-10am, first and third Fridays of the month: this crew receives our orders from the Greater Chicago Food Depository.  It involves taking heavy boxes of cans, meat and produce from the GCFD pallet into the Pantry.  Volunteers must have the ability to lift and move heavy boxes.  Please provide your phone number if you are signing up for this slot, as sometimes the truck is delayed and we will let you know when it arrives. 

Food sorting and shelving, Fridays 12-2pm : this crew receives food reclamations and puts everything away. We need some heavy lifters for this crew. 

Set up crew, Wednesdays 2-4pm: This crew packs bags of food for clients and prepares shelves/tables for client service.  A few folks who can do heavy lifting are needed for this shift, but otherwise all ability levels are fine.  

Client service crew, Wednesdays 4-7pm and Saturdays 8:30-11:30am:  This crew helps clients choose food and get the food into their vehicle. 

Registration crew, Wednesdays 4-7pm and Saturdays 8:30-11:30am: this particular role is limited to volunteers who have been trained on our Link2Feed registration system. 

Cancellations: We understand that things come up, people get sick, etc.  If you have to cancel for any reason, please do so on the Sign Up Genius so that another person can step in.  Be sure to give us as much notice as possible.
