Moraine Township Offers Assitance to Unpaid Federal Workers

“Moraine Township residents employed by the Federal Government and not receiving paychecks are encouraged to visit our food pantry, and apply for rent, utility or other assistance for which they may qualify," Township Supervisor Anne Flanigan Bassi announced today.

“Government Workers unable to pay rent, mortgages and other necessities should not also have the stress of being unable to feed their families," emphasized Township Trustee Amy Zisook.

Moraine Township's Food Pantry is located at 800 Central Avenue, Highland Park. The Pantry provides fresh produce, eggs, dairy and meat, as well as shelf-stable food, in a client-choice, grocery store setting. Pantry hours are Tu-Th 9:00 a.m. until noon; Wednesday 1:00 to 3:30 p.m., and other times by appointment.

“Individuals should bring their Federal government ID, as well as utility bill, lease or other proof of residency." Supervisor Bassi added, “We are here to serve our residents in need, short or long-term.”

Moraine Township encompasses most of Highland Park, all of Highwood and small parts of Deerfield and Lake Forest.
