Some McHenry Co. Residents Are Going Hungry

MCHENRY COUNTY, IL — We've probably never needed World Kindness Day, which is observed Novemver 13th, more in McHenry County than we do today. It's been tough on multiple levels, from the inconvenience caused by coronavirus social distancing to real economic hurt among some of your neighbors who lie awake at night worrying about how they're going to feed themselves and their families.

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 only: New Hours effective May 22nd: 9AM-11:45AM*

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