Glendale Heights plans food distribution

A food distribution event for families affected by COVID-19 will be from 9:30 a.m. through 1 p.m. Saturday, June 13, in the parking lot of Camera Park, 101 E. Fullerton Ave., Glendale Heights.

The event is sponsored by Glendale Heights in conjunction with the Northern Illinois Food Bank through Milton Township Food Pantry, St. Matthew Parish, ICNA Relief and the Neighborhood Food Pantries at Family in Faith Church. Food and supplies will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

To ensure the safety of staff and volunteers, the village asks that participating families enter the park from Fullerton Avenue and follow the signs; wear a mask or face covering; stay in their vehicle unless asked to get out; and put vehicles in park and unlock the trunk or back seat so volunteers can properly load food.
