Feeding the Hungry: Maple Morgan Food Pantry  


The Maple Morgan Park Food Pantry’s annual holiday turkey fundraising campaign is underway. The Thanksgiving food distribution is in November, and many families are expected to be in need of emergency food. Our local pantry gives a turkey and all the trimmings for holiday dinners in November and December.  

Each donation of $20 can supply a turkey and the trimmings a family meal. Send checks to the Maple/Morgan Park Food Pantry, 11030 S. Longwood Dr., Chicago, IL 60643. Donations can be made on the pantry’s website, maplemorganparkfoodpantry.org.   

As much as the pantry appreciates and needs donation of non-perishable food items, money is still the best donation; food can be purchased at exceptional savings through the Greater Chicago Food Depository.  

For individuals and groups interested in making donations of food, these are the items the pantry needs: hot and cold cereals, bottled water and juices, baby formula, diapers for babies and adults, canned tuna, canned salmon, canned chicken, condiments, corn muffin mix, cranberry sauce, pancake mix and syrup, pasta, pasta sauce, Stove Top dressing, mac and cheese, pork and beans, baked beans, Hormel chili with and without beans, sloppy joe sauce, spam, Chef Boyardee assorted products, boxed sugar, boxed mashed potatoes, hot sauce, milk products, snack bars, tea bags, toothpaste, toothbrushes, bar soap, dish detergent, tissues, almond milk, toilet paper, paper towels.  

For more information, call 773-239-3013. The Maple Morgan Park Food Pantry is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization.
