The mission statement of this program seeks to serve the needs of the community, and to answer the needs of the community for food assistance.

We recognize and understand that persons of fixed incomes or underemployed deserve good quality nutritional food, and to be treated with dignity and respect, regardless of race, sex, ethnic background, religion, or socio-economic standing.

Our clients work one day a week in the Food Assistance Center to help meet the goal of serving more than 1,000 families with a food box weekly. We provide monthly deliveries to homebound seniors. Every Wednesday, we open our doors to the public and our clients serve the residents of Thornton Township.

The Senior Food Delivery Program is administered at this location. Contact 708-596-6040 Ext. 3180
