Welcome to the Food For Friends website

Shortly we will be having a number of great events that celebrate our mission of serving food to those less fortunate.  It’s a great time of the year to Pay It Forward!  We hop[e to see you at one of those events.  If you would like to volunteer, please explore your options via our “Events” option on our main menu.

Note:  For some of the popular serving events, like Elgin and Pacific Garden Mission, our volunteer list has already been full for a few weeks (make note of this for next year!).  Regarding the Elgin Thanksgiving Dinner…  while the serving opportunities are full there, it is an open community dinner, so everyone is welcome…  it is not a meal not just for homeless or less fortunate.  So please come to support your fellow community members and spread the Food For Friends love.

We also invite you to catch up on our other News.  For example, our annual golf fundraising event was held September 12, 2017.  Please see our summary article here.

For more about Food For Friends, please visit the “About” menu item on the top of this page.

Of course, we can’t solve all the problems that cause hunger, but we can all Pay It Forward!
