New Trier Township's Food Pantry Needs Restocking

While we have been grumbling about the price of gas and food at our house, we are pretty ok, as I suppose are most of the area residents. Nevertheless, the tough economy is taking its toll, and the number of citizens who need to use the New Trier food pantry has recently increased.

New Trier Township is asking for food donations for its food pantry located at 739 Elm St. in Winnetka. Office hours are 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Particularly needed are tuna, cereal, canned fruit, cake mixes, rice, salt and pepper. You can take your contributions directly to the office, where they will be gratefully received.

UPDATE, October 24, 2008: Times have gotten tough for some people, and if you live in New Trier Township (Wilmette, Winnetka, Kenilworth, Glencoe, and parts of Northfield and Glenview) and need assistance, emergency aid, or items from the food pantry--or know someone who does--DO call the New Trier Township Social Services Administrator at (847) 466-8201. More information is available on the New Trier Township website. The pantry is located at the township office on Elm Street in downtown Winnetka, just east of Lincoln Avenue on the east side of the tracks.
