Hunger is a Critical Issue in the Greater Elgin CommunityDonate
“The food I receive at Food For Greater Elgin is the difference between feeding my children and sending them to bed hungry. Thanks!” Pam
First Responder to Hunger
Food For Greater Elgin is a Regional Client-Choice Food Pantry serving low income residents in Elgin, South Elgin, and East Dundee. Just 3 years at its warehouse/office complex, Food For Greater Elgin is currently providing food assistance to 1250 families each month, feeding 6000 individuals in those households, of whom nearly half our children.
Offering Innovative Approaches
➢ Client-Choice – Families shop with grocery carts, choosing food items rather than receiving pre-bagged groceries.
➢ Warehouse Environment – Optimal for acquisition of truckloads of food, storage, and client choice floor space.
➢ Full Service – Five client-choice food distributions every week, including weekends and evenings.
