Several hundred families in the Rockford area will be able to have a full Thanksgiving meal thanks to the Rock River Valley Food Pantry, however, officials with the pantry say that need does not end after the holidays.
"When you're providing food for over 7,000 individuals, that means 85,000 pounds of food every month going out our doors," Executive Director Kim Adams-Bakke explained. "So, we need the help of the community even in January, February, and March. It never ends."
You can help by calling the pantry at 815-965-2466 or going online to www.rrvp.com.
