Tony Araque is the Niles Township Food Pantry Manager.  "First let me thank everyone who volunteers, donates food or gives monetarily" he said. "We greatly appreciate your generosity and all that you have done. Our motto here at the Niles Township Food Pantry is Serving Food with Dignity.  I hope we have accomplished that goal.  The Niles Township Food Pantry Foundation, a 501c3 Corporation, was created solely for the purchase of food and goods for our food pantry clients"
 
Niles Township Food Pantry Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that supports the food purchases for the Niles Township Food Pantry. As a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization, donations to the Niles Township Food Pantry Foundation are tax deductible.
 
The Niles Township Food Pantry is operated for the benefit of township residents who are in need. It is our goal that no person goes hungry. The Niles Township pantry is located at 5255 Main, Skokie, IL behind the Administration building at the south end of the complex.
 
Currently, the Food Pantry provides food at no cost to about 4,000 low-income individuals per month who reside in the communities of Niles Township. All monetary donations are allocated to purchasing food to replenish the pantry shelves. For every dollar donated four (4) meals will be purchased.
 
Through partnerships with the Greater Chicago Food Depository, Catholic Charities and contributions from area businesses, civic groups, and individuals to the Niles Township Food Pantry Foundation, the pantry is able to serve its clients.
 
Checks may be written payable to Niles Township Food Pantry Foundation and may be mailed to Niles Township Food Pantry Foundation, 5255 Main Street, Skokie, IL. 60077 or delivered to the township office.
