On Tuesday, October 3rd, 2023 the Batavia Interfaith Food Pantry and Clothes Closet will open doors at its new location:
431 North Raddant Road
Batavia IL 60510
Until then we will continue to operate at our current location.
The last day at the 100 Flinn St. address will be Friday, September 29th, 2023.
THE CLOTHES CLOSET IS OPEN BY APPOINTMENT
The Clothes Closet continues to be open in a limited capacity. We are currently allowing up to 4 shoppers at a time (only one shopper per card), for a limited time of 15 minutes (if others are waiting to come in). All shoppers must wear masks in the store and use hand sanitizer prior to signing in.
We ask all clients to sign up for a shopping time at SignUpGenius or call 630-406-0036 to schedule a time.
Then, on your shopping day, please arrive 5-10 minutes before your scheduled time. You will still have 15 minutes to shop, but if you are late or miss your time, you will miss that opportunity. If you are scheduling a food pickup on the same day, please let the Food Pantry staff know when they call to schedule your pick up. Thank you! We hope this makes the shopping experience easier and safer for all.
The Clothes Closet is now accepting FALL clothing donations. Because we have limited volunteer availability at this time, we are trying to spread out the drop off times of these donations.
If you have more than 4-5 bags to donate, please call 630-406-0036 to schedule a day. See the column on the right for drop-off hours.
Please go to the Volunteer page to sign up online to volunteer at the Clothes Closet.
The Batavia Interfaith Clothes Closet is a not-for-profit volunteer agency that is directed and operated as an extension of the food pantry by community and local church volunteers residing throughout the greater Fox Valley. Those who visit and use our Clothes Closet are our neighbors and friends: people with disabilities, seniors, low income families, and families who have lost their jobs. Certified Food Pantry Clients are eligible to shop at the Clothes Closet. The Pantry issued card is required at each visit. Clients may use the Clothes Closet twice a month.
