In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have altered our distribution method and operations schedule to drastically limit exposure for our volunteers and the families we serve. During this time, we are seeking financial support as we ramp up our food orders to the Food Bank and make sure our inventory is sufficent to serve families in this modified way. And so, monetary donations are especially appreciated right now.
Leveraging our partnership with Northern Illinois Food Bank, we can obtain $8 worth of groceries for every $1 donated!
Also, 96.5% of all cash donations go directly to purchasing food! Our other operational costs are less than 3.5%!
Monetary donations can also be mailed to P.O. Box 879; Carpentersville, IL 60110.
Donations can also be made from our Facebook Page (@d300.FoodPantry).
We always welcome donations of non-perishable food items as well as personal hygiene, paper & cleaning products. We have an ongoing list of "Most Needed Items" and sometimes we also have a monthly list of "What We Need Right Now." See links to these documents below.
DONATION DROP-OFF TIMES:* PLEASE NOTE: During the COVID-19 situation, our hours and drop-off locations have changed. Please contact us at 847-783-7030 or email@example.com for updated information or to schedule a delivery.

CUSTOM HOLIDAY MEAL BOXES
Each year the D300 Food Pantry strives to create a box of items that allow our families to create a special holiday meal. For 2020 we are looking to more than double our previous record and provide 200 Holiday Meal Boxes. These boxes will also supplement family needs during the long holiday break, and will be distributed on Saturday December 19, 2020. There are two ways to support this project:
SPONSOR A HOLIDAY MEAL BOX
For just $25 you can sponsor a meal box and make a family’s holiday a little brighter.
SPONSOR A HOLIDAY MEAL BOX ITEM
This is a great service project for groups or teams. Groups that would like to participate will be assigned an item to collect. They will then be responsible for collecting 200 of that item.
