Food Pantry Challenge

04/02/2019 @ 3:45 pm

Local Food Pantries are Encouraged to Join Farm Bureau’s “Food Pantry Challenge”

Cook County Farm Bureau® will be donating $1,750 to Cook County food pantries.  We’d like to help food pantries provide healthy food for the families in their community.


This summer Cook County Farm Bureau will be hosting a “Food Pantry Challenge” on Facebook.  Throughout the summer, families will vote on Facebook for their favorite food pantry.  The Facebook polls (five in all) will be boosted to families in the pantries’ service areas.  After 10 days, the pantry that receives the most votes will receive a donation for $350.  The second-place pantry will receive a donation for $150.  


Interested food pantries are encouraged to contact Bona Heinsohn at 708-354-3276 or via email at [email protected] for additional information.
