Tonight we celebrated the 2nd Anniversary of the Share Food Share Love Food Pantry by setting another record for the most clients served in one shift. We weren't sure exactly where we were headed when we opened our doors for the first time on December 19, 2015. It has certainly been a wild ride during which we increased from serving one community to serving seven and quadrupled the number of clients we serve each month. Thank you to all of our volunteers and donors and everyone who has helped make the Pantry such a success! We couldn't have done it without each and every one of you!
And here's to the start of year three!
Today we express our undying gratitude to our friends at Ingredion in Bedford Park! Not only do they donate the produce from their employee-run Community Garden to the Pantry, but they also donate a slew of reusable grocery bags full of food and other staples for distribution to our clients during the holidays. They are truly a class act!
Today we want to thank one of our long-time supporters who have generously provided us with countless donations over the years. Thank you to Mica, Cheryl and everyone at USF Holland in McCook!
Thank you to our friends at Vulcan Materials at the McCook quarry for collecting food for us! You guys are aces with us!
A special thank you to Dennis and all of our friends at Tischler Finer Foods for all of their support throughout the year! When you are looking for what you need to make that memorable holiday meal, make sure you stop and see Dennis and the crew!
