The Thanksgiving Season is almost upon us and the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry is preparing to have Thanksgiving Meal Boxes available for local families who may be in need. As in past seasons, the availability of these food boxes is made possible by many generous sponsors.

The Thanksgiving Food Boxes include a 12 – 14 pound turkey, pie and cake mixes, vegetables, milk, cheese, yogurt and eggs. The cost of a food box is $50. You can sponsor a total box, or co-sponsor with other individuals or make a partial donation.

Over a 3-day period, the pantry plans to distribute 600 Thanksgiving boxes. If you know of a family who will need help with their Thanksgiving meal, please have them contact the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry at 630-469-8668 and to make an appointment for pickup.

Thanksgiving Food Box contribution envelopes will be on the poster boards located in the narthex. The contribution envelopes can be dropped in the collection baskets or mailed directly to the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry, 493 Forest Ave., Glen Ellyn, Il. or follow us on Facebook for the pantry’s ongoing activities.

The Glen Ellyn Food Pantry staff, board and volunteers wish all a blessed Thanksgiving and thank you all for your continued support.
