CARPENTERSVILLE – The Chapel, will be holding a Mobile Food Pantry from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on May 16 to the first 300 families at Perry Elementary School, 251 Amarillo Drive.

Food will be distributed at no charge on a first come, first served basis. Volunteers are needed and if interested, contact Craig Raddatz, Mobile Food Pantry team Leader at craddatz40@comcast.net or (847) 828-4647.

The Rotary Club of Fox Valley Sunset will be sponsoring this event.

The Chapel provided some 14,800 meals in Carpentersville in 2013 and remains committed to continue its support to this community in 2014.

With the Rotary’s participation in this food initiative, The Chapel is able to continue to serve those children and families in need within School District 300. 

The Chapel has supported D300 for the past four years and continues to find it difficult to raise the money needed to support the type of commitment it has had and try to grow the program due to the continued need for assistance. 

The Chapel is looking for partners like the Rotary Club to support this effort through donations.

The Chapel is the largest Mobile Food Pantry organization in Lake County for the Northern Illinois Food Bank and is affiliated with the Northern Illinois Food Bank through The Chapel’s Community Care Center located in Grayslake.

The Chapel is a non-denominational, multi-site church that has 8 campuses spread throughout the suburbs of Chicago.
