The Art of Joy and Giving
In early March 2021, students and faculty members of Downers Grove High School North decorated and embellished 350 of our Outreach Pantry Packs. Each Pantry Pack consists of 2 bags of Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal, 2 bags of Mac and Cheese, 2 bags of Rice and Beans, and 1 bag of Pasta with Tomato Basil. That’s a total of 14,700 meals! Also happening in March, Feed6 teamed with Keller Williams, One Chicago, and Project Hope to embellish and distribute 110 Pantry Packs, representing 4,620 meals!
These spruced-up Pantry Packs were distributed by local food banks and charities to food-insecure neighbors in the community. Since the introduction of the Outreach Pantry Pack into the Chicago Region, over 44,000 meals have been provided to food-insecure families, kids, veterans, and seniors all in the Chicagoland area.
Feed6 is a packaging partner of Outreach, operating in the Midwestern US. Founded in 2011 by Bill Kanatas and Chris Coyne, Feed6 and their volunteers have since packaged over 4,800,000 meals. Thank you so much for all you do!
