Local Retail Support

We would like to let everyone know how generous the local stores are to our pantry. A BIG THANKS to the following stores for their ongoing donations of food to our pantry.

  • Jewel - Cary
  • Jewel – Fox River Grove
  • Aldi's - Cary
  • Trader - Algonquin
  • Walgreen’s – Cary
  • CVS - Cary

We send volunteers to these stores 5-6 times a week to pick up fresh food such as produce, dairy, bakery and meats. Walgreen’s and CVS donate holiday items. We would not be able to offer this type of food if it were not for the generosity of these stores. Please remember how generous these stores are when you are shopping.

As a result, monetary donations are essential to enable us to adequately stock our shelves to meet the food needs of families in the Cary-Grove community.
