A message from Hope Food Pantry Director, Betsy Barnett.
Hello! Thank you for your interest in Hope Food Pantry/Hope Food Distribution Services!
2022 is shaping up to be another interesting year for the food pantry. We started off the year with low numbers due to the Omnicron variant and some lasting effects of the government stimulus programs. However as inflation began to heat up our numbers on Saturday mornings have increased dramatically as well, nearly doubling since January.
Inflation is real and painful for everyone, but especially so for our working families whose food budgets are slashed in order to pay for gas. We are working hard to meet the need in Lake County, along with our fellow food pantries in Libertyville.
Please donate if you can! We can leverage every dollar with our purchases of food and personal care items from Northern Illinois Food Bank. Thank you to Sunset Foods in Long Grove, Aldi in Vernon Hills and Mundelein, and Walmart Vernon Hills for their continued weekly donations!
A BIG THANK YOU to our area dentists donating toothbrushes and toothpaste!
