Moraine Township Food Pantry Thanks Boy Scouts and Sunset Foods - Every bag does count!
The Boy Scouts focused their efforts on Scouting for Food and Moraine Township Food Pantry benefited!

"We were amazed by the 150 bags of groceries delivered to the Food Pantry by Boy Scout Troop #150 over the last week in coordination with the annual Northeast Illinois Council of Boy Scouts and Sunset Foods to help local food pantries," said Moraine Township Supervisor Anne Flanigan Bassi.

Chris Fardoux, Troop 150 Scoutmaster, applauds the Troop’s work on this effort and is thrilled with the results of the drive. Click to read more.

MORAINE TOWNSHIP FOOD PANTRY IS MOVING & IMPROVING AND NEEDS YOUR HELP TO MAKE IT WONDERFUL!
Moraine Township, set to open its new client choice food pantry in early 2018, has announced a unique giving opportunity for those who'd like to help make the new space complete and find the perfect gift for the person who has everything!

The pantry has established a "wish list" of necessary but unusual items needed to equip its new client-choice Pantry. "We're hoping the community will think outside of the box when gift giving for any occasion, and give these items in someone's honor or memory to help our Township's struggling families for years to come," said Township Supervisor Anne Flanigan Bassi.

"With 27% of our Highland Park / Highwood elementary students from low-income families and 6,000 resident-visits to our pantry in the last 12 months, food insecurity is a reality in our community," noted Township Trustee Amy Zisook. "The items on our wish list are necessary to equip our new Pantry serve our client population.""
