Thankfully those families that have children 18 and under living in their home will have a chance to get free groceries this summer at one of three Summer Family Markets.

Those who needed are invited to stop by Wantz Park (600 Clifford Ave. Loves Park) on these 3 dates:

  • June 19th 2pm - 4pm
  • July 14th 2pm - 4pm
  • August 12th 4pm - 6pm

Families do not need to register or have any documentation to receive a pre-packaged box of food. But they will be asked to remain in their vehicles and a volunteer will place their box in the truck or in the car.

These Summer Family Markets are held in cooperation with the Rockford Park District, Community Action, and the Northern Illinois Food Bank.
