Please Give Today





Thank you for your contribution to the Batavia Interfaith Food Pantry and Clothes Closet. Your gift helps us build a strong foundation of care within our community.

While we receive many donations of non-perishable food and clothing, monetary gifts allow us to offer much needed milk, eggs, cereal, soap, toilet paper, diapers and laundry detergent. Through our cooperative buying power with the Northern Illinois Food Bank, we can turn a $1 gift into $8 worth of food.

Please join us in helping our neighbors in need.
