PLAN would like to say a great big THANK YOU to the Women in Business Networking Group.
Recently the Women in Business Networking Group (WING) Held a Womens Night Out event to Feed the Need. They raised money to purchase a mobile food pantry from the Northern Illinois Food Bank to give out meals to PLAN families. A Mobile Pantry is a traveling food pantry that delivers food directly to hungry people in need. The 35-foot truck carries nonperishable food, like rice, canned protein sources, pasta, and breakfast cereals. It also has refrigerated bays for fresh and frozen food, like vegetables, fruits, bread, red meat, poultry, pork and seafood.
Through the efforts of WING's Womens Night Out enough money was raised to purchase three visits from the mobile food pantry.
GREAT JOB LADIES! You are helping to make a difference one person at a time!

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK GCHS!
PLAN would like to thank the students from the GNHS Public Service class who took a field trip to participate in the gleaning of food that went to over 40 different pantries.
PLAN opened its door's in 2007 and in our first two years 30,000 individuals in households in our area were given assistance. Forty percent of the members we serve are children under 18 years old; at least 5 percent of those we serve are homeless.
