Food Pantry Donations

Help Stock the Shelves of the Northfield Township Food Pantry

From September 1-30, please drop off non-perishable food donations in the Northbrook Public Library's lobby during open hours to help support local families in need.

What types of donations can be dropped off?

You can drop off non-perishable items in cans, plastic containers, or boxes. The Pantry is especially in need of: 

  • Boxed cereal
  • Rice (1 & 2 lb packages)
  • Canned chicken
  • Boxed potatoes (mashed, scalloped, etc.)
  • Canned vegetables (green beans, peas, corn)

We'll bring all items collected to the Northfield Township Food Pantry in early October. 

What happened to Food for Fines?

We became a Fine Free library in April of 2020, so because we no longer charge fines for overdue items, there is no longer a need for "Food for Fines." Even though it’s no longer necessary to bring in donations to erase fines, we hope you will still consider donating to help local families in need.

About the Northfield Township Food Pantry

The Northfield Township Food Pantry was established almost 50 years ago. Today, many hundreds of Township families are eligible to visit the Pantry. The Pantry is sustained entirely by residents, civic organizations, schools, businesses, and the faith community who generously donate food items, grocery store cards, and cash.
