According to CBS-TV Chicago, as food pantries in DuPage County continue to struggle to keep up with demand, one provider has said they can now serve a lot more people thanks to a big move to a new home. There might be no more fitting place for Glen Ellyn Food Pantry leaders to work on their mission than an historic 100-year-old building: a former parsonage – residence for church staff – renovated by capital campaign funds to create 6,000 square feet of food pantry storage and grocery aisles.
