Pantry East Waukegan

The  number of visitors to COOL Food Pantries remains very high with many months bringing more than 4000 individuals to COOL to receive groceries.  Due to high unemployment rates and a difficult economy COOL needs your help more than ever to provide meals to thousands of Lake County families this year.

At COOL, visitors receive food based on family size. COOL distributes prepacked boxes and bags of staples plus at least 1 pound of frozen meat per family member. Guests can also choose many items daily from our bread shelves, produce tables and more.

Upon arrival guests simply take a number and are served in turn. Families will meet briefly with a staff member or volunteer who verifies their identity, need and family size.  Most visitors are served and on their way within 15 minutes of their arrival at the pantry.

Volunteers Needed

Pantry helpers are in great need at COOL pantry East in Waukegan. Could you work a shift once per week distributing food boxes at the pantry? Box packers are also needed. Others are needed to drive our truck and help pick up groceries. If you are interested in helping with the important work of Feeding the Hungry at COOL please call Gayle Olson at 847-662-1230. Shifts are from 10 AM to 2 PM Monday-Friday.

Donations Welcome

There are many ways to help COOL feed the hungry. Making donations couldn’t be easier. Scout groups, clubs and others often enjoy holding food drives and competing to see who can collect the most help for the pantries.  Please consider holding a food drive to collect food for your neighbors in need. Churches and businesses are encouraged to place collection bins in promient places encouraging others who can help to do so.

 If you are interested in making a monetary donation to help purchase food checks can be directed to COOL Ministries at 800 W. Glen Flora Ave , Waukegan, IL 60085.

Thank you for helping your neighbors in need!
