Food Pantry

The Cuba Township food pantry continues to provide non-perishable foods, paper products, cleaning supplies, and toiletries during the COVID-19 pandemic. Recipients who are not feeling well are encouraged to contact us at 847-381-1924 to make alternative arrangements.

The food pantry maintains a list of qualified recipients. If you are not a current recipient but need assistance, please call us at 847-381-1924 or email your contact information to info@cubatwpil.gov, and a staff member will contact you.

You can also complete an online Intake Form, save it to your desktop and email it to info@cubatwpil.gov to sign up for the food pantry. A staff member will contact you within 24 hours (except on weekends).
