The West Deerfield Township Food Pantry serves over 250 township residents each month who find themselves in need, either on a long-term or temporary basis. March 1-22, the Library will be collecting donations for the Food Pantry of non-perishable foodstuffs, household cleaning items, and personal hygiene products.
Donations can be dropped off in the shopping cart, courtesy of Whole Foods Market, in the Library’s lobby. Please check the expiration date, and donate non-expired foods, only!
The Food Pantry Wish List includes:
- Canned protein (tuna, chicken, ham, beans)
- Lunchbox-friendly foods
- Canned fruit (small size)
- Jelly or Jam
- Macaroni & Cheese
- Pasta and Pasta sauce
- Coffee and Tea
- Laundry detergent (small size)
- Toilet paper

All items distributed by the Food Pantry are donated by neighbors and area businesses, and sorting and shelving are all done by volunteers. For more information about assistance, donations, or volunteering, call the Township office at 847-945-0614 or visit during any business day at 601 Deerfield Road, Deerfield.
