More than 20,000 food items have been donated to date as part of a Community Unit School District 308-led food drive to benefit the Kendall County Food Pantry.
 
The food drive will run through Oct. 2 in each school building, and community members will have the chance to donate during the Crosstown Challenge football game on Oct. 3.
 
Fans will also receive a raffle ticket for each can of food that they provide. There are a range of raffle prizes to be given away, including various gift cards to local restaurants and businesses, including: Chick Fil-A, Giordiano’s, McDonald’s, Red Robin, Sonic, the Popcorn Store and Home Depot to name a few.

There will also be three iPads with $10 iTunes gift cards, donated by Meijer, to be given away at halftime of the football game.
 
More than 7,000 local residents in need visit the Kendall County Food Pantry each month. The food drive occurs at a critical time before the holiday season, when donations are not at their peak.
