Libertyville Township Food Pantry Needs Your Help!

The Township Food Pantry is a 501c3 organization, which means we operate solely on donations. No tax dollars are used to purchase any food, household items, or grocery store gift cards that the Libertyville Township Food Pantry distributes to its clients. The Food Pantry is sustained entirely by residents, civic organizations, schools, and businesses, who generously donate food items, grocery store cards, and cash.

Right now, we are struggling to keep our shelves stocked. During the height of the pandemic, we were serving approximately 100 of our Township families per week. That number has grown to over 130 families per week.

The Township Food Pantry serves only Township residents, which covers parts of Mundelein, Green Oaks, Lake Bluff, Lake Forest, Waukegan, and all of Libertyville.

We are in need of canned vegetables and fruit, canned stew and chili, canned tuna and chicken, macaroni and cheese, pasta, ground coffee, and shelf stable milk.

Donations can be made Mon-Friday between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

Libertyville Township Board Meeting

June 18, 2024

7:00 pm at the Township

359 Merrill Court, Libertyville

Libertyville Township offices will be closed on Wednesday, June 19




On Saturday, July 13, 2024 from 9:00 a.m. to noon, we will hold a volunteer work day at the Donnelly Prairies and Oaks Preserve. No experience is necessary – we’ll show you what to do, and we’ll explain why it’s important. We’ll also provide gloves, goggles and hand tools (if needed), drinking water and snacks.

Wear layers of clothes that can get dirty. We strongly recommend blue jeans, sturdy boots, and three layers on top. We’ve learned that fleece jackets are just a magnet for sticky seeds and are best left in the car. We’ve also learned that if we’re cold we’re miserable, so we always recommend an extra layer of warmth – better to have it and not need it than the other way around.


We are a hardy bunch but workdays will not be held under the following conditions:

  • Temperatures of 95 degrees or higher
  • Lightning or extremely high winds.
  • Deep, heavy snow
  • Temperatures or wind chills of 10 degrees or lower

Directions to Donnelly Prairies and Oaks Preserve

The site is located on Casey Road.

Entrance to the site is the farm entrance/gate west of Almond and Casey Roads, on the South side of Casey Road.

Youth Guidelines

Children 12 and older are welcome if accompanied by a supervising adult. High school students who enjoy working in the outdoors are welcome with parental permission. Releases will be available at the work day.
