Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant Will County Executive

I am honored to serve as your Will County Executive. As a lifelong resident of this great county, I have witnessed many changes as we have evolved from an ag-community to a major hub in the global distribution market.  I am dedicated to building upon this status but I am equally dedicated to maintaining the quality of life for the nearly 700,000 residents and thousands of businesses and organizations that call Will County home.

Please explore our website which is filled with important information about services and departments within the County Executive office as well as connections to other county officials’ websites.

Will County is diverse, vibrant and filled with hard-working people. We have room to grow and we look forward to a great future.

“This event is open to anyone in need of fresh food,” said County Executive Bertino-Tarrant. “I am extremely thankful to the volunteers at Sharefest Will County who are working to provide nutritional food options to our families at no cost.”

Attendees will have the opportunity to drive up and volunteers will pack their vehicle with groceries in the Will County Office Building parking lot. No registration or pre-approval is required. Attendees are asked to enter the parking lot from Scott Street, which is a one-way street from the south. 

“I invite anyone in need of assistance stop by on May 27 for free food and groceries,” said ShareFest Will County Founder Gary Cheney. “Sharefest has been making an impact in our community for over 16 years. I'm proud to be partnering with Will County to host an event in the heart of downtown Joliet.” 

ShareFest Will County is asking members of the public to volunteer both at the event and to help pack and sort food in advance. Volunteers can register at www.ShareFestWillCounty.org
