You do know someone
who is
hungry.

Nearly 100,000 people are at risk of hunger and food insecure in DuPage.

The new pantry campaign

Rededicated as a community-based and independent nonprofit organization with its own 501c3, the EYFP owes a debt of gratitude for the almost 30 years it functioned as a mission of Yorkfield Presbyterian Church.

Launched literally in a closet, the first move transitioned the program to the cottage on the church campus. That was 16 years ago in 1998. Erecting a new building on church property honors that history while building facilities to meet a growing demand. This photo presents the outside of the building as exists today; the insert displaying the redesign of the campus, building plan and elevations presents the future.

We are in need of a larger space!

EYFP’s current facility severely constrains its ability to effectively meet this growing demand. The EYFP Board’s showed its commitment to meet this growing demand by approving the building of a new Community Food Pantry.
