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!
