Most needed donations include the following:

  • 1 lb. bags white rice
  • 1 lb. bags dry beans (black or pinto)
  • Canned green beans
  • Canned peas
  • Peanut butter (preferably smooth)
  • 1 lb. Spaghetti
  • Canned refried beans (black or pinto)
  • Ramen – chicken or shrimp flavor
  • Honey Nut Cheerios (no family size, please)
  • Pancake Mix
  • Jelly
  • Toilet paper
  • Paper Towels
  • Baby wipes

Donations of personal or hygiene items are also accepted. You can drop off items on our front porch if no one is in the office. You can also write a check and designate the funds to go to the St. James food pantry (contact our office to learn more). Thank you for your generous giving to those in need.

We are also supporting the local efforts of the Northern Illinois Food Bank, who organize a mobile food distribution in Highwood every Friday.
