Hall Township Food Pantry seeking "Milk Money"

NT Staff

Over the summer, the Hall Township Food Pantry held a cereal drive and received a large supply of cereal.

“We were all excited to be able to offer such a variety to our patrons — until we discovered that we didn’t really think it through,” said Jan Martin, executive director of Project Success of Eastern Bureau County Inc. and operator of the pantry.

Now the pantry is in need of milk to accompany the cereal. The campaign is called Milk Money. Martin said milk provides important nutrition, and the pantry has several large coolers to hold a lot of milk.

Also, 5-8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 12, Culver’s in Peru will host a Culver’s Cares Night and part of the proceeds will be donated to the pantry. That donation can be used to purchase milk. Martin said the goal is to raise $650 to cover the cost of a month’s supply of milk.

Other donations for Milk Money can be sent to Hall Township Food Pantry, 500 N. Terry St., Spring Valley, IL 61362.
