  • Important Information

    What to Expect
    All clients are greeted by a WeGo Together Community Market volunteer or staff who will answer questions, explain our process, and provide you with a cart. You are then free to choose the foods you want from our selections that week. We sometimes have boxes and plastic bags available, but we encourage you to bring your own grocery bags when possible.

    Community Market services are available to all families living in West Chicago, particularly serving families with children ages 0-18. Each household may receive food once a week during the Tuesday market time. We encourage our guests to take the amount of food their family can use for that week.

    How to Get Started
    First-time visitors to the Community Market are asked to complete a simple registration process giving names, dates of birth, and ages for all household members, and address and phone contact information. Please bring a photo idea and proof of address.
