*To maximize the purchasing power of the dollar committed to the Genoa-Kingston Food Pantry, we purchase food through the Northern Illinois Food Bank. The monthly list of food to purchase changes and is dependent on availability, so the needs vary from month to month. We do not spend money designated to the food pantry on non-food items and depend on the generosity of others to fulfill these needs.

Volunteer opportunities include stocking shelves on
Northern Illinois Food Bank delivery days(first Thursday of every month - 8:30 am)
Food Pantry day
(third Monday of every month - 9-11am).
