"When you're served your second helping, be sure someone enjoys their first."

For one week, the Main Library Lobby will be a registered food drive site. Donations will be collected in the lobby from Monday, Nov. 18, through Friday, Nov. 22.

All donations benefit Oak Park River Forest Food Pantry, who works year-round to provide hunger relief in our community. In 2013, the Food Pantry distributed 660,000 pounds of food, 40 percent of which was made possible by food donations.

Drop off donations any time during Main Library hours. Our staff members will be available to help.
