Loaves & Fishes Community Services provides assistance to families residing in Naperville and DuPage County.
We believe that food is a right and not a privilege. Food insecurity is a public health concern having medical, educational and economic impact on our community. By actively reducing food insecurity, we are improving the health of our community for all of us.
Loaves & Fishes serves residents of Naperville and Naperville Township. DuPage County residents in need of food assistance are also eligible to receive food distributions. To qualify for food assistance, a household’s gross monthly income must be within the guidelines established by the Illinois Department of Human Services income guidelines for their family size.

How to Enroll/Register
Enrollment occurs at your first visit during regular food pick-up hours (listed above). For all clients, both new and existing, we require TWO (2) pieces of identification each time you register for food pick-up:
- A driver’s license, state ID, passport, or a consular ID card.
- A current utility bill in your name or the name of someone in your household, OR, if you do not have a current utility bill, a lease in your name.
Every time you come to Loaves & Fishes for a food distribution, you must bring these documents. If you do not bring them, we can only serve you the emergency food we have on our emergency shelves. Please have your documents ready for the check-in desk volunteer.
Please bring your own shopping bags as we can’t guarantee supply.
