“Fill the Mayflower” helps to stock the shelves at the IV Food Pantry

Posted by wlpo on November 24, 2013

Saturday morning was cold and windy but it didn’t stop shoppers at Hy-Vee in Peru from putting others before themselves.  Many shoppers bought a $10 bag of groceries for the Illinois Valley Food Pantry before stepping inside the store.

The food drive called “Fill the Mayflower” has grown into annual event that food pantry Executive Director Donna Hess looks forward to every November.   She says this year’s event brought in more food than last year.

The food drive was sponsored by La Salle County Broadcasting and the Illinois Valley Y.  The truck load of donations was unpacked at the pantry by local Boy Scouts and their leaders.
