Since 1980, concerned citizens in the Aurora area have attempted to provide canned goods and other groceries to persons in need of food assistance. That movement, known as the Aurora Area Interfaith Food Pantry, has seen substantial increases in the requests from year to year.

Nearly 4,000 families are registered to receive food from the Pantry and new families register for assistance on each distribution day at an average of 153 new families per month. Over the past year, the Pantry distributed 34,000 bags of groceries, providing an average of 75,000 pounds of food each month to individuals and families in need. In the past two year, requests for assistance have more than doubled.
