Summer Stock Day Restocks Food Pantry Shelves
Northbrook Farmers Market once again partnering with the Northfield Township Food Pantry to help restock food pantry shelves with household cleaning and personal hygiene products. Summer Stock 2022, sponsored by our friends at Edward Jones — Northbrook, is Wednesday, July 20. Items of particular need include paper towels, toilet paper, hand sanitizer, laundry detergent, dish soap, women’s personal hygiene products, and other dry goods — all items that cannot be purchased with food stamps, but certainly are necessities. There will be a jar for cash donations, which helps the pantry purchase food and supplies as needed, said Township Supervisor Shiva Mohsenzadeh.
Market organizers are grateful to Omar Zaki and Julie Grobman of Edward Jones–Northbrook for their generous donation that helps defray expenses associated with the event. “We are honored to sponsor a collection drive for the Food Pantry,” said Zaki. “We think it’s great that our local farmers market makes this effort to help those who need assistance. It’s all about community.”
As always, volunteers will be available to help unload cars for those needing assistance with their donations. Just come to the Welcome Booth.
Northfield Township will offer information about the pantry and other services at their drop-off table. Additionally, every Wednesday volunteers collect fresh produce from farmers, for a total of 65,000 pound over the years.
The market is open Wednesdays, 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., in the parking lot of Meadow Plaza, Cherry Lane and Meadow Road. For more information, visit www.NorthbrookFarmersMarket.org.
