Illinois Food Finder

Finding safe and healthy food should never be a concern in Illinois. Thanks to the Feeding Illinois partnership, a network of eight food banks across the state ensure that every suburb, town, and neighborhood has food resources to feed individuals and families.

How to Use This Resource:
Depending on your county, your food bank provider and local food pantry may change. To find the closest food pantry, find the county you live or work in on the state regional maps below. Once found, click on the corresponding link which will take you to a geographic food finder tool built specifically for your region. Simply enter a zip code, address, school, or town into the search bar to find local food options. We advise visiting the website of your chosen food pantry or giving them a call to confirm openings/closures and hours of operation.
