Mobile pantry “Helps the needy, not the greedy”

Bourbonnais, IL – The Secret Food Pantry will host its next mobile pop-up event Wednesday, March 17, 2021, from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Bourbonnais Municipal Center parking lot at 700 Main Street NW. Anyone can come for food, according to the pantry’s founder and organizer, MaryLu Kruegr. There are no residential or financial restrictions.

The pantry instructs attendees not to arrive more than 30 minutes prior and to follow a designated route per the Bourbonnais Police Department, which will be assisting in directing traffic. For those who are in need, take Route 102/Main Street NW and turn on Stratford Drive East. Follow event signage to William Latham Senior Drive where vehicles will be staged while awaiting entry for food pickup. Pantry organizers ask that attendees do not block any residential or commercial driveways while waiting.

“The previous pop-up pantry event held earlier this month was well-attended. There are people in need here, “explained Mayor Paul Schore. “The Village of Bourbonnais is happy to offer this location for the mobile pantry to operate. Thank you to the Bourbonnais Police Department for assisting.”

The Secret Food Pantry, a non-profit based out of Godley, accepts financial donations at Financial Plus Credit Union locations. Volunteers are always welcome. Interested parties may reach out to The Original Secret Pantry group on Facebook.
