FISH of McHenry Food Pantry has been open and will continue to remain open during the COVID-19 pandemic but with new policies implemented for the safety of our volunteers and guests. Since March 17, 2020, we have been serving only outdoors in a drive up format with generous carts of pre-packed food, personal care and household items. Currently, we are offering assistance to both families and individual adults who are in need of food and household products regardless of their geographic living area.
FISH of McHenry Food Pantry is committed to providing a safe environment for our volunteers, guests and any people who visit our facility.
Here are the policies and actions we have implemented to maintain an environment that will allow us to continue to serve our guests:
A. All guests that come to our facility will be served with food and household items,
but we have changed our procedures for the safety of all. Currently, we are only
serving outdoors in a drive-up model. Guests are not required to sign any-
thing to receive food.
B. At the present time, we are serving guests during our regular pantry hours.
Guests should remain in their cars and follow instructions from volunteers directing
traffic in the parking lot. Each car will receive a clipboard with a shopping
list of items to be checked off. The list will then be filled inside the pantry by
volunteers and brought out in carts to cars. To view our current Shopping
Lists, please click on the following links below.
