The Romeoville Community Food Pantry has continued to serve families weekly throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, according to coordinator Teresa Linaweaver.

In addition to an increase in individual donations, the pantry has benefited from grants, including a $5,000 grant from General Motors, according to Linaweaver.

The grant allowed the pantry to procure necessary items when grocery stores and partners like the Northern Illinois Food Bank had difficulty keeping goods in stock.

The substantial grant from GM meant the pantry’s service to families was uninterrupted during difficult times, when pantry usage has more than doubled.

The Romeoville Community Food Pantry is located at 2 Belmont Drive and is currently open for drive through style service from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.every Saturday.
