BOURBONNAIS – The Secret Food Pantry will hold two mobile pop-up events this week in the Village of Bourbonnais from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 28th and from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Thursday, April 29th out of the Bourbonnais Municipal Center parking lot at 700 Main Street NW.
The Secret Food Pantry’s founder and organizer, MaryLu Kruegr, confirmed anyone in need can come for food; there are no residential or financial restrictions. The pantry instructs attendees not to arrive more than 30 minutes prior and to follow a designated route per the Bourbonnais Police Department, which will be assisting with traffic logistics.
For those who are in need, take Illinois Route 102 (Main Street NW) and turn on Stratford Drive East. Follow event signage to William Latham Senior Drive where vehicles will be staged while awaiting entry for food pickup. Pantry organizers ask that attendees do not block any residential or commercial driveways while waiting.
The Secret Food Pantry, based out of Godley, accepts financial donations at Financial Plus Credit Union locations. Volunteers are always welcome. Interested parties may reach out to The Original Secret Pantry group on Facebook. To review the pop-up pantry route map, visit: https://www.villageofbourbonnais.com/residents/events.
