“Be a Neighbor – Feed a Neighbor”

Client Guidelines

Welcome to the Algonquin Lake in the Hills Interfaith Food Pantry.  We are here to help
you on a temporary basis.  Here is a list of things that you will need to know:

1. As stated in the Algonquin Lake in the Hills Interfaith Food Pantry By-Laws:  

a. Article I Section 2.  To provide supplemental food on a TEMPORARY basis to
individuals and families in need who reside within the municipal boundaries of
Algonquin and Lake in the Hills, Illinois.  

b. Section 3.  To provide the above-mentioned service as needed until other social
service programs established to address longer term needs are successfully accessed.

2.  You must completely fill out an application to be served.  Proof of residency within
the boundaries of the Village of Algonquin or the Village of Lake in the Hills is required.  
State identification card, piece of mail or utility bill showing the recipient name and
address are acceptable forms of verification of residency.  False information may be
grounds for refusal of food.  Information on the application is used to determine how
much food you need.
Each family also needs to complete a "Self-Attestment" form,

this ministry and pray that He will watch over all of our clients and workers.
