Child Food Insecurity in McHenry County

For the tenth consecutive year, Feeding America conducted their annual Map the Meal Gap study to improve our understanding of food insecurity and food costs at the local level. The most recent release is based on data from 2018. In response to COVID-19, they have also released a companion study and interactive map that illustrate the projected impact of the pandemic on local food insecurity in 2020. To better assess the current and future state of local food insecurity, it is critical to understand historical variations prior to the pandemic. Only then can we develop effective strategies to reach people at risk of hunger.

About

The Neighbors Food Pantry began in the 1980s through a group of volunteers to alleviate hunger in our community. Over the last nearly 40 years, the pantry has grown in the number of families and individuals served and the number of community partners that support this work – and it is still operated entirely by volunteers!

In 2010, the Neighbors Food Pantry became a partner agency of the Northern Illinois Food Bank. And now today, the pantry is a partner ministry of the congregation of Nativity Lutheran Church. Today, we are providing food to as many as 500 families and individuals from across McHenry County – neighbors in need from Wonder Lake, McHenry, Woodstock and more!

Pantry Hours

Wednesdays: 10AM – 12PM*, Saturdays: 11AM – 12PM*

All are welcome no matter your residence in McHenry County! *The last client is accepted 15 minutes prior to closing!
