For the last three years, Food for Greater Elgin Pantry has been working together with our volunteers, donors, and the community to provide food security for the community of greater Elgin.

Nearly half our clients are children - they need food to grow and learn. One in ten people in our area are food insecure - choosing between food or paying the rent or gas or medicine.

These are our clients (most will use our services during tough times - approximately six months).
