The Batavia Interfaith Food Pantry is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, volunteer agency that is directed and operated by community and local church volunteers residing throughout the greater Fox Valley. We are also a member of the Northern Illinois Food Bank Cooperative. Those who visit and use our Food Pantry are our neighbors and friends and people with disabilities, seniors, low income families, and families who have lost their jobs.
Once a client/family has been certified they may use the Pantry once a month. In addition, all clients can come during the last half hour of the Pantry’s hours of operation for produce and bakery items. The Pantry is also open to all clients each Saturday morning, see right column for hours and available items.
The Batavia Food Pantry has been in operation for over 30 years. Currently it is serving over 1200 individuals each month. This would not have been possible without the active support of the community volunteers and donors who so selflessly donated their time, effort, and money.

Mission Statement
