Help Fill Feed the Kids Boxes (and the stomachs of hungry children)

We have enough nonperishable food for our July Feed the Kids but not enough for the August distribution. We need 2,500 more pounds. That’s enough food for 100 boxes each with a weight of 25 lbs. We are even finding shortages at our best (and most economical) source for purchasing food, Northern Illinois Food Bank.

Can you do a food drive for us? This is a great project for vacation Bible school, summer camps, or even your own neighborhood, club, or church. The children in Feed the Kids depend on us to fill the void left when school is out and they do not have free or reduced-cost school meals to help meet their nutritional needs.

We need any amount of:

main meals & hearty soups,

peanut butter & jelly,

pancake mix & syrup,

pasta & sauce,

canned fruit,

cereal, crackers,

and healthy snacks

A Big THANKS for Helping!!!
