End of the Line Humanists will be collecting food and funds for the Oak Park River Forest Food Pantry at our Holiday Social Gathering on Thursday, December 13th at 7:00 at Shanahan's Creole Restaurant, 7353 Madison St., Forest Park(details on the Events page here).  Below is a list of acceptable items.  You may gather items (from family and friends as well, if you wish) and bring them to the event that night.  However, money is actually the most effective donation, and a little goes a long way.  Each $1 in donated funds allows the Food Pantry to buy $10 worth of food from the regional food bank.  So for the retail price of a can of tuna to donate, the food pantry could buy 10-15 cans of tuna at the food bank with the cash.  We will have a collection box for the funds.  

Hunger Statistics:

  • 1 in 6 Americans do not have access to enough food
  • Over 50 millions Americans don't have dependable, consistent access to food due to limited money and resources
  • Over 30% of families who utilize OPRF Food Pantry have at least one working adult in the household
  • OPRF Food Pantry serves over 1,400 families each month from 12 Cook County zipcodes
  • Food donations account for 40% of the food that is distributed to clients.  The remaining  60% is purchased.
  • A $1 donation purchases $10 worth of food for OPRF Food Pantry from the regional food bank.
