Inflation hits the poor the hardest and makes their life very difficult. This means that they rely on the Food Banks even more. The BEST WAY to donate is to make a check out to ECM (Elgin Cooperative Ministry) – OR – pick up a few extra items while you are at the store.

What Is Needed

  • Food items: cereal, canned foods, granola bars, peanut butter, pasta, rice, pasta sauce, veggies, fruit and meat.
  • Cleaning supplies: sponges, paper towels, laundry detergent, bleach, all purpose cleaners, dish soap.
  • Toiletries: soap, deodorant, razors, feminine hygiene products, shower gel, diapers, toilet paper.

The most effective donation is always money so the food pantries can buy what is needed in bulk.

Make checks out to:

ECM – Elgin Cooperative Ministry
FFGE – Food for Greater Elgin
