Mt. Morris Loaves and Fish Food Pantry is seeking donations to provide Thanksgiving meal boxes to local families in need.
The meal boxes, made possible in partnership with Northern Illinois Food Bank, contain a turkey, potatoes, stuffing, gravy, canned fruit and vegetables, coffee, and dessert – enough to feed a family of eight.
A $16 donation will allow Mt. Morris Loaves and Fish Food Pantry to provide a local family the opportunity to enjoy a traditional holiday meal with their loved ones this holiday season.
To sponsor one, two or more families, send a gift to Loaves and Fish Food Pantry, Att: Nelson Miller, Treas., P.O. Box 202, Mt. Morris, IL 61054.
The public’s help is needed to make the project successful.
The pantry hopes to raise $2,400 above its regular donations to purchase 150 Thanksgiving boxes.
Any donations received above the amount needed to purchase Thanksgiving meal boxes will be used to purchase food for the pantry.
Mt. Morris Loaves and Fish Food Pantry provides food to an average of more than 350 individuals each month.
The pantry is a partner with Northern Illinois Food Bank which provides food to food pantries and feeding programs across 13 Illinois counties.
