Put Your Hands Together Emergency Family Food Assistance
was established in response to the needs created by the Coronavirus. This Out of School Lunch-Box Program began as a community wide service providing emergency food support to families with school children, supplementing regular shopping trips with children’s breakfast, lunch and snack foods.
Today, grocery bags full of non- perishables and donated meat, dairy, produce and frozen meals are provided by food support sponsors and distributed by volunteers via a parking lot pick-up / drive - thru process. What began as a small pop up pantry at Immanuel has grown into a twice monthly pantry at the church with weekly food distributions to other food ministries as well as occasional pop-up pantries at neighboring churches, and non-profit organizations.
Immanuel's Put Your Hands Together food ministry supplies healthy food to families, assists local food pantries and eliminates food waste.
The next pantry day will take place Saturday, March 6, 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
We are located at:
2317 S. Wolf Road
Hillside, IL 60162
Please enter south (school) parking lot and follow signs. Please remain in your car. Volunteers will assist you. Exit using the south driveway by the church.
