We would like to thank everyone that came out to buy plants and support their neighbors in need. Thanks to our generous plant sale patrons, we were able to raise over $1,200 for the Westchester Food Pantry. The pantry is able to use these funds to provide nourishment to food insecure residents of Berkeley, Bellwood, Broadview, Hillside, Hines, La Grange Park, Westchester, and Western Springs.
In some of these areas that the pantry services, as many as 1 in 2 residents can be food insecure. This means that they lack reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food. Your contribution to our $1,200 donation means that hundreds of people will not have to worry about feeding themselves or their families for a little while.
Thank you, Westchester, for supporting your neighbors in need. And keep your eyes peeled for next year's plant sale!
