PHOTO Cullerton tours Addison Township Food Pantry with Reboletti and DuPage County Board MembersADDISON — State Senator Tom Cullerton (D-Villa Park) heard Tuesday about progress and development of the Addison Township Food Pantry.

Addison Township Supervisor Dennis Reboletti led Cullerton and DuPage County Members Dino Gavanes and Sam Tornatore on a tour of the food pantry’s recent expansion.

“Addison Township is providing our neighbors with an easily accessible resource to help ensure their children and families do not go hungry,” Cullerton said. “I’m impressed with the heart and soul the Addison Township Supervisor Reboletti and his staff have put into making this food pantry a successful component of our community.”

The food pantry is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 to 11 a.m. for Addison Township residents in need of food. The pantry is located at the 50 E. Oak St. entrance of the Addison Township Building (401 N. Addison Road, Addison).

One in seven Americans – 46 million people – rely on food pantries and meal service programs to feed themselves and their families, the study found.

The food pantry relies on donations from local grocery stores, businesses and residents.

“Hunger exists in every community,” Cullerton said. “If we continue to build and strengthen partnerships between government entities, business communities and residents we will be able to stamp out hunger one township at a time.”

Residents of Addison Township can receive food on a monthly basis. For example if a resident receives food from the pantry on June 5, they may return for additional food on July 3. However, if there is dire a need of food, a resident can return at any time.

The food pantry offers non-perishable food items along with USDA commodities and it accepts donations of food and personal hygiene items.

Cullerton urges residents with questions regarding donations or food pantry operations to call the Addison Township Office at (630) 530-8161.
