Food pantry director, treasurer resign amidst investigation

Maria Spaeth, Kendall County Food Pantry's Executive Director, and her husband, Ken Spaeth, the pantry's treasurer, resigned their positions June 7, according to Brian Young an attorney representing the organization. Young confirmed that the Spaeths resigned in a letter accepted by the Food Pantry Board.

Young, an attorney with the law firm of Morse & Bolduc and Dinos, is the son of Jeff Young, a member of the board who has been been appointed interim chair of the board and executive director.

Brian Young did not say if the resignations were related to a Yorkville police investigation of a possible theft of funds from the pantry's financial accounts. No charges have been filed and police have said the investigation is continuing.

As part of their investigation, police said in a statement that they served search warrants on the food pantry building at 208 Beaver St. in Yorkville and on a personal residence located in Kendall County on June 1.
