WING Feed the Need Food Drive

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!
