Every Bag Does Count!
The Scouts "scouted" for food, and Moraine Township Food Pantry users benefited!
Many thanks to the Northeast Illinois Council of Boy Scouts and Sunset Foods for the 100 bags of groceries delivered to our Moraine Township Food Pantry on March 6, 2014.
Our Food Pantry users will benefit from this effort in the coming weeks. Food insecurity is growing in our community, with 27.5% of Highland Park/Highwood School District 112 students qualifying for the low-income federal free and reduced lunch program.
When residents visit our Moraine Township Food Pantry, in addition to bags of dried and canned food, they are also offered frozen meat. Thanks to a grant from Congregation Solel, we are now able to offer fresh produce, eggs and dairy to our pantry users. Highland Park's Sunset Foods has been a valuable partner, and has been generously donating produce and bakery items to our pantry that would otherwise be disposed of.
Income-qualified Moraine Township residents are welcome to visit our food pantry during regular pantry hours, or at other times by appointment. For pantry hours or to make an appointment for other times, call 847-432-3240.
