Charting impact

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

The Belvidere/Boone County Food Pantry was established to serve those underprivileged in the Boone County area. We seek to serve all residents who fall below the poverty level income guidelines as established by the Illinois Department of Human Services.

Not only do we offer our clients food products, but they can also shop in our non-food and clothing areas. In the non-food area, we offer daily essentials such as shampoo, diapers, cleaning products and much more.

Our goal is that we always have enough quality food products to serve everyone who comes to us and we never have to turn anyone away.

Each year we contact individuals, companies, churches, foundations, grants, etc., to assist us with operating expenses. We also hold 5 - 7 fundraisers each year.

We have a paid Part-Time staff of 8 which includes our Executive Director, Director of Operations, Executive Assistant, Organizer, Head of Maintenance, Warehouse Manager, Cook, and Housekeeping. In 2015, we had 181 volunteers, this included teenagers from local high schools who need community service hours to graduate, as well as people on probation, and individuals just looking to give back to their community, these people contributed over 9,624 hours to help us operate The Pantry and serve our clients. Without the generous gift of time from them we would not be able to successfully and effectively operate The Pantry.
We have a Vista who is reaching out to clubs in North Boone School District to have them hold specific drives such as, a diaper drive, toilet paper drive, etc.

We are proud that the Belvidere/Boone County Food Pantry was was named one of the finalists for the Governor's Award in December 2009, coming in second out of all the 501(c)(3) agencies in the State of Illinois.

We received a certificate of recognition from Northern Illinois Food Bank for "Feeding Hope and Fighting Hunger."

We have received a "You Make a Difference" award from General Mills 2 years in a row, as well as a certificate of appreciation from Capron Elementary School. Our Executive Director received the "Spirit if Caring" award from Crusader Clinic.
