A letter from Supervisor Vanderweel...
Elk Grove Township provides much needed food for our less fortunate neighbors. We are asking for a little help from those citizens who are able to purchase one or two extra food items when they are shopping for their families. We are looking for donations of canned goods, such as soups, fruit, and vegetables. Jar foods such as peanut butter and jelly, and pasta sauce. Dry foods such as pastas, rice, cereal and oatmeal.
With a generous endowment from the late Herbert E. Linneweh of Mt. Prospect we are able to purchase fresh meat and poultry for our food pantry recipients. However, we are still in need of stocking the pantry with the above mentioned items.
Summer sees a huge increase in the number of families that are using the food pantry. One reason for the increase is that many of our children receive free breakfast and lunch at their respective schools. When school is NOT in session their family's are not able to afford the much needed food to support the health and well being of their children.
As in the past, I have seen Elk Grove Township residents and our business community willing to help their neighbors. I along with those we service will be forever grateful to you for your generous support. We accept food donations Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. - 4 p.m. We also have a food drop box at the front entrance (please no glass jars) for those who want to drop off items after hours and/or weekends. For further information on how to donate please visit or General Assistance page or call 847-437-0300. Thank you.
