Dylan Bockelman’s Eagle Scout Project

Huge KUDOS to Dylan Bockelman for organizing the collection of food and raised funds for the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry’s re-opening in August! Dylan did an amazing job canvasing the community, distributing bags, picking up donations, sorting, labeling, and delivering the entire donation to the Food Pantry with a team of helpers. Dylan’s collection of more than 310 boxes of food (2500 pounds!) and almost $3,000 was a tremendous individual effort for which the Food Pantry Staff and Board of Directors is very grateful! Your efforts are a great impact to stocking our shelves for the opening on August 1st!

Thank You, Dylan … you made an incredible difference to the lives of our neighbors experiencing food insecurity, providing enough food to distribute 2,100 meals in the community!


Volunteer Appreciation

Today the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry Board and Staff members celebrated our wonderful Volunteers at our annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon. We simply could not do without them! We rely on our volunteers to pick up Food Recovery from local retailers, sort fresh produce, put away food donations on Pantry shelves, bag clients groceries and so much more. If you have a couple of hours to spare each month and would like to join or volunteers, please fill out our Volunteer Information Form.
