From February 28th to March 7th, scouts across northern Illinois will be gathering items to support their local food pantries. While Scouts collect food regularly as part of meetings and events, this is an annual service project conducted by our youngest Cub Scouts(ages 6-11) up through Boy Scouts(ages 11-17) and Venturers (ages 14-20).   In McHenry County alone, the scouts will serve all 13 food pantries, hoping to beat last year's collection of over 45,000 food items!!!   

Within the Huntley area, we will have over 200 scouts from six scouting units supporting the Grafton Food Pantry: 

Cub Scouts Boy Scouts Venturing Crews
Pack 167 Troop 167 Crew 1067
Pack 267 Troop 267
Pack 467

 

Please watch for Scouts leaving flyers and support them as they come door to door over the course of the week to help our friends and neighbors in need.  If you have any questions, please contact Joe Miller at 847.508.5120 or Harriet Ford at 847 254-8351.

 

 

 

 

 

THE MISSION OF THE GRAFTON FOOD PANTRY

Our mission is to strive to improve the lives of our friends  and neighbors in need by providing food items and education on nutrition and smart shopping. We treat every individual with respect, privacy and dignity on their journey to becoming independent of our services. We are committed to educate and bring our community together in the fight to end hunger. We are a 501 (c) (3), Non-Profit Organization.

The Grafton Food Pantry is as an organization that truly brings the community together. Strong ongoing initiatives have been made to reach out to local businesses, service groups, elementary and high school students, Scouts, churches, temples, and the residents of Sun City in order to better serve the community. We also provide referrals to other agencies and programs so that our clients may have every opportunity for any support they may need. We believe in utilizing existing services, not in duplicating the efforts of other agencies. We serve the Village of Huntley, Village of Lakewood, and portions of Lake in the Hills, Crystal Lake, and Algonquin. Our generous volunteers and benefactors are of every age, religious faith and ethnicity. They work side by side helping their neighbors in need.
