Oak Park River Forest Food Pantry is committed to providing the most nutritious food possible for our neighbors in need. So we’re looking to increase the amounts of fruits and vegetables we offer. And we’re trying to build as much protein in our food allotments as possible. Of course we can’t afford to buy T-bone steaks for everyone. But we can find ways to help people put Pantry foods together in ways that make meals more nutritious—and delicious.
We offer on-site nutrition education sessions during many of our regular food distribution sessions. See the list below for dates when the Nutrition Education team will be on hand.
