    I stopped in last week for the first timeThe wait was about an hour. The staff were super friendly, helpful and non judgemental. When I left with a cart full of groceries I got in my car and cried. I was overwhelmed by the goodness of others It made a lasting impression. There are people out there who care and when I am back on my feet I will be there to help. Thank you so much!!

Food for Greater Elgin is a collaborative non-profit organization formed to address hunger in the greater Elgin community.

Since forming in January, 2011 we became an agency member of Northern Illinois Food Bank and have served over 10,655 emergency food visits from the Elgin area.

Our goal is to serve hundreds of people each month through our facility at 1553 Commerce Drive in Elgin. We are currently averaging more than 1000 families a month.

We use innovative approaches to address the need, such as:
- Offer families a choice of food items rather than pre-bagged groceries. Client choice has a proven record of lower food waste. Food will be more accessible through expanded hours including evenings and weekends.
- Acquire high quality food at a lower cost. Through our partnerships and food rescue programs we will be able to acquire more than $5 worth of food for as little as $1.
- Work together as a community. Many Elgin churches, businesses, schools and social-service agencies are committed to supporting Food for Greater Elgin through funding, volunteers and shared programs.
