BELVIDERE (WIFR) -- The Community Cupboard food pantry recently received a $5,000 grant from the General Mills Foundation on behalf of the Belvidere, Illinois Community Action Council.

“With the holidays around the corner and students eating more meals at home, the timing of the grant is perfect,” said Shannon Hansen, Director. “The Community Cupboard is grateful for the support of the General Mills Foundation and will use the funds to continue providing food assistance and promoting healthy eating habits to Belvidere School District #100 students and their families.”

The Community Cupboard is the first school-based pantry in the state of Illinois and is housed in a classroom within the Belvidere School District. It is open every Thursday from 2 to 4 p.m. including spring break, winter break, and the summer months.
