Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our strategic plan is to continue expanding our services to serve all of McHenry County by providing food and supplies for all who are in need.

Expansion of our facility, number of volunteers and resources to serve more neighbors in need. Effectively utilize our refrigerated truck to start our own backpack program for kids and our own mobile food truck distribution throughout McHenry county. Utilize our new facility to provide classroom and office space for other social service agencies that can help those in need receive the services they need.

Newly renovated facility with a larger grocery area, more food storage space, increased refrigerator and freezer space for perishable foods, a refrigerated truck and classroom/office space for other agencies and educational opportunities for our clients.

Full utilization of office space and more frequent mobile food truck distributions in rural areas of our county that are in need.
