May 12, 2018 Event Recap: Mobile Food Pantry at The Chapel Church

Note:  On May 12, 2018, Food For Friends sponsored a Mobile Food Pantry event at The Chapel Church, Lake Zurich. We sponsor these Food Pantry events a number of times throughout the year. Below please find a thank you note that Food For Friends Board Member Ken Rasbid sent out to the volunteers after the event.

Food For Friends served 224 ‘Friends’ at the May 12, 2018 Mobile Food Pantry at The Chapel Church of Lake Zurich

“I want to thank each of you that contributed to our May event as 224 families collected groceries and received hope through the love you provided.  Of note, this Mobile Food Pantry had a record number of 94 pre-registrations that were redistributed to our friends in both Wauconda, as well as next door at Zurich Meadows.  I’m so proud of this team for mobilizing and bringing the food directly to the people most in need!

I also want to share how we see God moving through this ministry.  As a result of the time invested in Wauconda and the expansion of relationships with leaders in their community, I am thrilled to share that Life Bridge Community Church will be hosting their first MFP on Saturday, June 30.  There new leadership group has an amazing heart for their neighbors in need and have been hard at work planning and pre-registering guests for what we hope is simply their first of many events to come.   Thank you both Food For Friends, and the Stahl Family Foundation – who have stepped in to sponsor and financially support this endeavor!

I encourage you today and remind you that we are each “more than food”.   Let’s continue our work and see how lives are changed!
