The Belvidere/Boone County Food Pantry and Resource Center has been blessed for many years by the generous giving spirit of the Feed The Children agency. Whenever we have no where else to go for food and non-food assistance, they have been there for us. The 2,000 clients that we serve each month find hope at our facility and much of that hope comes from Feed The Children, Inc.

We at Belvidere/Boone County Food Pantry are extremely excited to be partnered with Feed The Children. Whenever we pick up a semi-load we are blessed by the wonderful array of products. When we receive a truckload of products, we are able to give our clients a case of food instead of just a can or box. There are non-food products that are mixed into our load makes our clients feel like it is Christmas when they visit our facility for assistance. I would like to thank Feed The Children for the kindness they have always shown us. Since we are a resource center as well as a food pantry, our clients can receive all their daily needs under one roof; such as food, clothing, personnal hygiene products, household products, and furniture, etc. Feed The Children helps us to keep all of these departments filled with products.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
When we receive a load of product from Feed The Children, all the products are securely wrapped and organized in the semi-trailer in such a way that makes unloading the pallets extremely easy. There are no broken pallets or no shifting of products during the trip fromFeed The Children to our facility. We can unload a full load in 1/2 hour.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I wish there were grants to help with the trucking charges. Our facility is four hours away and the trucking charges are $300.00. I also would like to be able to pick up more often but the waiting list takes about six months before we our turn comes up.
