Food is more than a physical necessity; it is an emotional necessity. Food is used to show love, encourage trust and friendship, and create traditions. Food can comfort, encourage, and inspire. It can give confidence and hope.
Our annual Westchester Garden Walk is more than a means to show off our beautiful village; it is yet another way that Grassroots Garden Group is able to support the work of the Westchester Food Pantry. Run entirely by volunteers, the pantry serves hundreds of local food insecure households every month. By donating the proceeds of this event, as well as our other fundraising endeavors, directly to the Westchester Food Pantry, we have been able to contribute over $14,500 in the last 5 years.
For every dollar gifted to the Westchester Food Pantry, they receive approximately $9 of buying power through the Greater Chicago Food Depository. With just one $500 sponsorship, the pantry can distribute nearly 1,500 meals to clients.
