The next mobile food pantry will take place Wednesday, Jan. 11, at First Christian Church, 455 W. Southmor Road, Morris. It is sponsored by First Christian Church.

Registration will begin at approximately 3:45 p.m. and at least the first 100 numbers for a place in line will be drawn by lottery.

Any family that resides in Grundy County and is in need of assistance with food is welcome to come to these food distributions.

Recipients are asked to provide proof of their residency either with a valid drivers’ license, state ID or utility bill with their current Grundy County address. Every person in line will be asked to show this proof, even if they have been to a mobile food pantry in the past.

Those interested in attending are encouraged to bring a container to carry the items they will receive; plastic laundry baskets and wheeled carts work well for this purpose. It is not necessary to let us know if you plan to attend the distributions, but if you have any questions, please feel free to call the We Care office at (815) 942-6389.

Upcoming mobile food pantry sponsors include Morris Hospital, First Midwest Bank and Mazon State Bank.

We Care is a local nonprofit agency that provides emergency assistance to Grundy County residents in the form of food, rent, utility and prescription assistance. We Care is a United Way partner agency and is funded primarily by private donations.
