Since 1982 the Crystal Lake Food Pantry has been helping those in need with quality food items and making sure clients are aware of other community services. We know that there are many reasons why someone might need help and we are not here to ask a lot of questions. Our job is to make sure our clients live in our service area, share service information and serve them the first time they visit us. We want our clients to feel comfortable when they come to us for assistance. That is why we have created a Frequently Asked Questions area to help better serve our clients.
