Fremont Township Food Pantry

Our pantry accepts monetary, food and non-perishable donations from local residents and businesses.  

Donations can also be made to the Fremont Township Community Garden. The Garden provides fresh produce to our low income seniors and food pantry clients.  We appreciate the generosity of our community.  

We are currently in need of toiletries and cleaning supplies.
Recycle Sheets, Blankets, Towels, for the Dogs
If you have used towels, sheets or blankets that need to be recycled, please consider bringing them to Fremont Township at 22385 Rt 60, Mundelein to be donated to local Animal Shelters and Rescues.  Please drop them in the bin on the front porch. This keeps them out of the landfill and puts them to good use.  

We also accept eye glasses and shoes to be recycled year round.  If you are disposing of shoes that have laces, please tie the laces together.
