Busy Wednesday at the Food Pantry

Two Thousand Pounds of Food!
Volunteers stock pantry shelves, preparing for Saturday
food distribution
Yesterday was a busy day at the SLCC Food Pantry. We picked up over 2,000 pounds of food from the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Volunteers offloaded the food, unpacked, and stocked the pantry shelves. Then the boxes had to be broken down and disposed of properly. Whew!

And it felt like mid-July too on Wednesday. Many of the food items, including potatoes and packages of baby carrots will be distributed this Saturday. The food pantry is open Saturdays from 9 a.m. – 11 a.m.
