Health Dept. aims to donate 300 pounds of food by April 1


Last year, the Park Forest Health Department Nurses Plus served as one of several drop-off locations for food donations as part of the United Way’s April Food Day initiative.

April Food Day is an event to promote awareness of food pantries by bringing the community together to participate in a local food drive.

The Park Forest Health Department is again participating in the April Food Day effort. This year, the Department hopes to surpass last year’s 200 pounds of donated food mark and reach 300 pounds.

Suggested items to donate include canned fruits and vegetables, dried good, and personal care items.

No glass items or expired items can be accepted.

Items can be dropped off at the Park Forest Health Department between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, through March 31.

The Park Forest Health Department is located in the lower level of Park Forest’s Village Hall, 350 Victory Drive.
