November 7- December 7, 2016


    The demand for food assistance continues to grow in our area of Walworth County and our local food pantry is low on supplies to help feed local families in need. Last year hundreds of food items and hundreds of dollars were donated by the citizens and businesses of Fontana to our local food pantries. 

    You can drop off your donations of either food or cash at the Police Department or, if you live/work in Fontana, you can call 275-2275 and an officer will stop by to collect your donation. Checks should be made out to the Village of Fontana and under memo write “Food Drive”. A receipt will be issued for any cash donations, if requested.  Fontana students can bring any donations to their individual classroom. 

    Many of these items can be purchased economically at Aldi, Wal-Mart or Dollar Tree stores.  Thank you for your support. The Pantry has asked for (non expired):

  • Canned Fruit

  • Canned Sloppy Joes

  • SCAMS AND CON MEN:   Remember the old adage " If it sounds to good to be true, it probably is", anyone can become the victim of a scam.  This may include someone contacting you saying that you've won a prize or it might be someone posing as a government employee like an IRS or FBI agent.  These government agencies will not ask for your banking or personal information over the phone.  Help us protect others from falling prey, call us immediately when you think someone is trying to scam you or a friend.
