FALL 2015 LOCAL FOOD DRIVE
Fall is the time to give thanks for the good things we've enjoyed throughout the year and share our bounty with others. Partner with Ten Thousand Villages Evanston and our local food bank, Hillside Pantry, in our Fall Food Drive and help a family in need enjoy a full holiday meal.
For two weeks, beginning October 20th and ending November 3rd, we'll accept your donations of canned and packaged goods (soups, cereals, pasta, rice, and non-perishable fruits, veggies, fish, and meat) at our store at 719 Main Street in Evanston. With your donation, we'll offer a coupon to shop in our store to say, "Thank you," for your generosity.
