    How Ordering Works

    Each household is eligible for one monthly distribution. Once registered, all you have to do is log in on a Tuesday or Thursday that you’re eligible to customize your order for that month and lock in your cart.

    How Pickup Works

    After registering, you’ll select a pick-up window. Be sure you’re available during the window and have appropriate transportation for over 80 pounds of healthy food!

    If you are unable to come in, you’ll need to sign a form called a “Proxy” that gives permission for someone else to pick up your food. Click here to access the Proxy form

    If you are a caregiver for someone who needs food and cannot physically come in to our sites, please print out the Proxy form, have the food recipient sign it, and bring it into the Pantry with you.

    Am I Eligible?

    Our online portal is easy to use and easy to access. Check out if you’re eligible to take advantage of our free services: 

    • Your income is at or below the government’s guidelines
    • You have access to cooking and refrigeration facilities in your home
    • You live anywhere in the city of Chicago — there are no service boundaries for our Online Market program
