October 2 Food Collection to Benefit Common Pantry of Chicago

The Grace Hunger Committee’s next food collection on October 2 will benefit Common Pantry located at 3744 North Damen Avenue in Chicago. This pantry provides emergency food and social services to about 1000 persons per month living on Chicago’s North Side. Most weeks they are able to provide clients with nonperishable goods, frozen meat, dry staples, fresh fruit and vegetables and some personal items when available thanks mostly to individual donations. Please remember to check expiration dates since pantries can’t distribute expired food and consider buying modest size products, e.g. a few 24 oz. cooking oil bottles rather than 64 oz. ones. (Grocery bags were donated by Mariano’s near Fox Valley).
