“Due to the generosity of the community,” said Deputy Chief Matt Wallace, “the Belvidere Police Dept. is able to provide three mobile food pantries this year with enough food for 250 families each time. Our first one was at the B-1 church, 1105 7th Ave. on May 5. The second one is here at General Mills Park, 301 Highline Dr. today (Friday, June 19).”

“The Northern Illinois Food Bank, YMCA, and BPD are providing the community with food and resources for families,” said Police Chief Shane Woody. Many people are still desperately in need of assistance due to COVID-19 related shutdowns and cut-backs.

The third mobile food pantry sponsored by the BPD will be held on Tuesday, July 14 at the Public Safety Building from 4 to 6 p.m.

On Tuesday, June 30, General Mills will be sponsoring a mobile food pantry at General Mills Park, 301 Highline Dr. from 5 to 7 p.m.

Other mobile food pantries and pop-up family markets will be taking place at General Mills Park on Friday, June 19; Friday, July 10; and Friday, Aug. 7 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
