It is only through the donations that the Neighbors Food Pantry can reach out to families in need of food in our community.

Because of our partnership with the Northern Illinois Food Bank, we are able to participate in the Emergency Food Program where we are able to buy large quantities of food at a greatly reduced price – making every dollar you give go much further than the traditional grocery stores. In fact, only spending $.14 for every pound of food purchased! This partnership also offers free commodities of fresh and frozen foods.

Please consider donating today to ensure we can fulfill these purchases each week – feeding all those who come to us in need. Additionally, we always accept donated supplies! Whether that be non-perishables (boxed dinners, canned soup, canned fruits/vegetables, pasta & more) or perishables (we have refrigeration and freezers available), all donations are welcome in order to meet the need in our community.

Donations can be mailed to us at: PO Box 293, Wonder Lake, IL 60097 or Given Securely Online >

Our Community Partners

Learn more about our community partners


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!
