OUR RESPONSE TO THE CORONA VIRUS
HOW YOU CAN HELP
The Sugar Grove Food Pantry will remain open to help meet the needs of the community. As an essential business, we provide for over 800 individuals at this time but we are seeing an increase in the community.
Now, more than ever, families may be facing increasing food insecurity due to the economic effects of the Covid-19 Virus. Our neighbors who greatly depend on every paycheck, and those whose children are out of school for any period of time, face greater challenges to feeding their families right now.
We care about the health and well-being of our clients, volunteers and staff. Therefore, we are taking extra sanitation precautions by following the direction of the Northern Illinois Food Bank and the CDC. We have modified our distribution model to a drive-thru service. Our Pantry will be offering only pre-packed food boxes, containing shelf-stable pantry goods as well as eggs, meat, dairy, produce and bread when available.
We will require increased resources during this crisis. Please see the ways listed below in which you could immediately help the Sugar Grove Food Pantry and your community.
Make your donation go further and let us do the shopping. Monetary donations are needed and appreciated. We do not pay sales tax and through our cooperative buying power with the Northern Illinois Food Bank we can turn $1 into $8 worth of groceries and household supplies to a local family in need.
The Sugar Grove Food Pantry is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. All contributions are tax deductible. Please make your donation online by credit card or paypal or by sending a check made payable to:
