Food pantry seeing empty shelves

Posted:

Bement - The food pantry in Bement is in dire need of donations, as their shelves are almost empty.

 

Because of the low supplies, the pantry has been forced to cut their hours. Cimtek Filtration will host a community food drive to help restock the shelves. The food drive runs until November 15th.

 

Non-perishable items can be dropped off at Cimtek, JTA Foods, Bement Library or the State Bank of Bement. The food bank is also accepting monetary donations.  

 

The pantry opened their doors in 2000 and operate with six volunteers. They are located on the corner of South Piatt and East Wing. If you would like to send a monetary donation mail them to Bement Food Pantry, PO Box 197, Bement, Illinois 61813. Please make checks payable to Bement Food Pantry.
