What is the Rotary Community Food Drive?

This is an opportunity for our community to help and support each other.  Through the collection of donations, we will restock the food pantries that support Carol Stream residents.  We have folks in our community who are faced with food insecurity.  If we all do a little and work together, it will go a long way in helping those in our community who need our support.  

How does it work?

Starting on March 1, 2024, we will start collecting donations at various locations throughout Carol Stream including businesses, schools, community buildings, and individual residences.  On April 13, 2024, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm all the donations will be brought to one centralized location which is Glenbard North High School.  The donations will be divided among 6 area food pantries that serve Carol Stream residents.
