On Saturday, Saturday 20, 2020, Food For Friends partnered with the Life Bridge Community Church and Cristo es la Roca in Wauconda for a Mobile Food Pantry to serve their community at large. Pictures from this event are posted in an album on our Facebook page.
At this event, we and our partners served 164 households representing 613 people, of which 253 are children.
In addition to the Mobile Food Pantry event, 15 moms from one of our partners, Fellowship Housing, received boxes of food. Each family was served a box of produce, dairy products, canned goods, and 2 gallons of milk.
Although COVID-19 brings us to do things a little different, leaders worked together to make sure both volunteers and guests were served with love and care. A smile through a mask is something we all came to learn quickly.
A big thank you to all our volunteers and all our sponsors that make events like this possible. Your generosity in time and resources makes a huge impact. We are blessed to have you as part of our Food For Friends family.
We hope to see you at our next Mobile Food Drive!
