Food Pantry Distribution Moves to Drive-Thru and Adds an Evening Distribution

Due to the replacement of the roof, distributions will be temporarily moved to outdoors. The Aurora Food Panty will be adding an evening distribution every third Tuesday of the month.



AURORA, IL. - DRIVE-THRU DISTRIBTUTION - Starting Monday, June 6, 2022, the Aurora Food Pantry will be moving all distributions outdoors as a drive-thru, due to a much-needed replacement of the roof. Indoor distributions will resume on Monday, June 27, 2022.


“We are thrilled to begin the long-awaited roof replacement this month at the pantry,” Said Shannon Cameron, Executive Director, “Distributions will be moving outside to keep everyone safe while the roof is under construction.”


Distributions during the drive-thru procedure will be Monday-Tuesday and Thursday from 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM. We ask all visitors to remain in their vehicles. Parking lot attendants will be able to assist with any questions upon arrival.


EVENING DISTRIBUTION – The third Tuesday of every month will be an evening distribution starting Tuesday, June 21, 2022, from 2:00-6:00 PM. There will not be a distribution from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM on these dates.

“We are bringing back late-afternoon/evening distribution to allow for those to visit the pantry who may work or have other commitments during our regular hours,” said Shannon Cameron, Executive Director. “We hope this will not only allow more to benefit from our services, but also encourage a whole new group of desperately-needed volunteers.”
