Farm Bureau Partners with Local Food Pantry for 2020 Food Checkout Day

12/04/2019 @ 4:15 pm

For the past 19 years, Cook County Farm Bureau® has partnered with Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana.  Through the generosity of partners Farm Bureau has donated over $145,000 and nearly 100,000 pounds of food.  

 

During the past 19 years, the House’s business model has transitioned, and they no longer rely on the food donations provided by Food Checkout Day.  For the 2020 program, Farm Bureau will partner with Together We Cope, a local food pantry serving 27 south suburban communities in four townships, Breman, Orland, Palos, and Worth. Together We Cope based in Tinley Park, serves 5,000 people monthly.

 

As we prepare for a new, and hopefully long term, partnership with Together We Cope, we want to ask for your support.  Help us to celebrate the healthy and nutritious food local farmers grow and raise by providing food donation staples like boxed cereal, oatmeal, mac and cheese, pasta, and peanut butter or through cash donations. 

 

All donations will go to Together We Cope and the 5,000 people who rely on their services monthly.
