Volunteers Needed for Feeding the Hungry

Thursday, June 21, 2018 - Posted 4:08:46 PM by Leta Janssen

Community members from the Fieldcrest School District are working to make plans to feed qualified Kindergarten through Fifth grade students over the weekends during the upcoming 2018-2019 school year.  We have applied to programs with both the Midwest Food Bank and the Eastern Illinois Food Bank that if we are accepted would provide a portion of the food that would be sent home with the young people each weekend. We would then supplement these foods with other items purchased. If you are interested and able to help out we will need volunteers for the following:  financial donations for the supplemental food items, volunteers to do monthly pick up from the food bank as well as unpacking these items, volunteers to do bi-weekly packing of food items into bags, and volunteers to deliver the packed bags to both the Primary and Intermediate schools each Friday during the school year.

If you are interested in making a financial donation, please make payments to the "Minonk Ministerial Association" and send to Immanuel Lutheran Church, 318 W 4th Street, Minonk, IL 61760.
