Chrysler Foundation To Feed 80 Belvidere Families
26 Nov 2013
Eighty families in the Belvidere School District will be able to celebrate Thanksgiving this year thanks to a grant from the Chrysler Foundation.
The foundation gave a $2,500 grant to the district’s Community Cupboard Food Pantry, which used the funds to provide holiday meal boxes to 80 clients. The meals include a turkey, canned fruit, canned vegetables, coffee, dessert mix, gravy mix, instant potatoes, and stuffing mix to feed a family of eight.
“We are thankful to the Chrysler Foundation and are pleased to provide holiday meals our clients can prepare and enjoy in their homes this holiday season,” Community Cupboard Director Shannon Hansen said.
The pantry provides both food and non-food assistance with families that have children attending District 100 schools. Click here for more information on the Community Cupboard.
