City of Aurora to Provide Free Groceries to 1,000 Families Friday
With the cost of gas — and pretty much everything else — going through the roof, the City of Aurora is teaming up with the Northern Illinois Food Bank to give out tons of free groceries to residents.
They are calling it the first citywide “Pop-up Pantry.”
According to the city’s official Facebook page, boxes of meat, produce and more will be distributed to 1,000 families. It will be first come, first served, so if you’d like to take them up on this offer, you’ll likely have to start lining up early!
The pop-up pantry is this Friday, June 17th, at Phillips Park in Aurora. Distribution starts at 9:00 a.m., but the line will surely form quite a bit earlier. The line will form down Smith Blvd.
Ten random participants will also receive $50 gas card.
