Food Pantry

"Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God."   Hebrews 13:16

The Food Pantry has been in operation for 40 years, supporting the less fortunate in our community. Right now, in the middle of the Covid 19 crisis, there has been a tremendous increase in demand. The Maine Township Food Pantry is in great need of your support.


Normally, PRCC donates on a monthly basis. We are hoping, with your support, to make Cans of Care Wednesdays a weekly event. On each Wednesday, starting on next Wednesday, April 22nd, and for the next month at least we will be collecting foodstuffs. Donations are being dropped off at labeled bins, placed at the homes of volunteer families.

You can find a complete list of drop off locations by going the Church Directory and clicking on "Groups" and selecting "Food Pantry Drop Off Site."

Monetary donations can be made via the Maine Township Go Fund Me page. Please do not include money in your food contributions. Hopefully our contributions will bless the food tables of many families in need!!

Please contact Judy Artrip 847-769-2211 if you have any questions or are in need of your donation being picked up.
