The DeKalb Elks #765 partnered with the Northern Illinois Food Pantry to utilize the Beacon Grant in order to sponsor two mobile food pantry events at their location in DeKalb, IL this year. The Elks gave away 35 collapsible grocery carts to those that entered the raffle. The carts were a huge help in assisting the individuals with collecting and carrying their groceries. Between the two pantry events, the Elks were able to serve 745 individuals in DeKalb County with their dietary needs. Thank you to the ENF for these wonderful grant opportunities to assist our community!
