Pantry East Waukegan

In the past two years the number of visitors to COOL Food Pantries has nearly doubled.  Due to high unemployment rates and a difficult economy COOL needs your help more than ever to provide meals to hundreds of Lake County families this year.

In recent months COOL has served food to more than 6000 individuals each month! Visitors receive food based on family size. Upon arrival guests check in at a Security Desk and from there 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.

Please consider holding a food drive to collect food for your neighbors in need.  If you are interested in making a monetary donation to help purchase food please contact Gayle Olson, Pantry Operations Manager at (847) 662-1230.
