The WeGo Together Community Market, now under the direction of People's Resource Center, is open to all West Chicago families with children birth-18. Click here to learn more about People's Resource Center. 

WeGo Together Community Market offers fresh produce, meats, milk, eggs, canned goods, and household staples to our guests.  During your visit you will be given a cart and encouraged to select the foods which are right for you and your family.

Eligibility

 
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, date of birth and ages for all household members, and address and phone contact information.  Please bring a photo idea and proof of address.
 

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.
Volunteering with the Community Market

Volunteers can serve during two shifts:

Tuesdays 8-10am - Help with unloading our food delivery and stocking the market.

Tuesdays 4-6p - Assist our guests in selecting their food, restocking shelves, registering guests, and returning carts.
