On Saturday, Sept. 28, members of the Carol Stream "Neighbors Helping Neighbors" sponsored their annual mobile pantry food distribution to help hundreds of low-income individuals from the Wayne Township Food Pantry.

For the last 14 years, this amazing group of friends and neighbors come together under the direction of their fearless leader, Al Pioch, to raise funds, gather food donations, recruit volunteers and show up to distribute thousands of pounds of food, health and paper products to low-income families.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

Although the food distribution itself is only for two hours, Al and his team come out extra early to make sure the parking lot is clean and to set up the thousands of pounds of products that are distributed.

The Neighbors Helping Neighbors mobile pantry is scheduled each September during Hunger Action Month and to help give families a little extra help at the beginning of the school year.

Every member of the team is fully committed to give each client the respect and dignity they deserve and always go above and beyond to make everyone feel welcome.

The Wayne Township Food Pantry feels very fortunate to Neighbors Helping Neighbors as their partner!
