Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have to postpone the Pumper Pull scheduled for September 2nd in conjunction with Hometown Days. We are actively working on a new date we’ll communicate revised plans as soon as possible. We look forward to the rescheduled Pumper Pull and other great events as we fulfill our mission together — caring for our neighbors in need.

Where does the money go?

This is a fundraising event — with a $300 per-team fee.

And 100% of the net proceeds benefit the Kendall County Community Food Pantry.

Because of the buying power of the Northern Illinois Food Bank and Feeding America, the KCC Food Pantry purchases food at a ratio greater than 8-to-1 so the $300 team fee literally translates into more than $2,400 in groceries and other needed items for local families in need.


Pay fee using PayPal:


Pay fee using paper check:

KCC Food Pantry, 208 Beaver St, Yorkville, IL 60560
