Hunger Knows No Season
2013 marked the 40th year that FISH of McHenry Food Pantry has been serving our Hungry Neighbors. We thank our generous community for their continued support to help keep our doors open to serve those in need. With the increase of businesses closing and unemployment rising, FISH is seeing an increase in the number of financially challenged families. Currently FISH is serving over 650 families per month, approximately 2500 adults and children. We are proud to be a Client Choice Food Pantry!
