Area residents are encouraged to participate in a month-long food drive being sponsored by the Madison County Bar Association aimed at eliminating the shortage at local food pantries.

Local area attorneys are helping by collecting canned goods and non-perishable food items and donating to local food pantries.

Donations are being accepted at the following locations:

  • Gori Julian & Associates, 156 North Main St., Edwardsville;

  • Schrempf, Kelly, Napp & Darr, 307 Henry St., Suite 415, Alton;

  • Becker, Schroader & Chapman, 3673 State Route 111, Granite City; and

    All donations received will be divided among the food pantry facilities in Madison County. The food pantries that will receive donations include, Glen-Ed Good Pantry in Edwardsville, Community Hope Center in Cottage Hills, Venice Township Food Bank in Madison, and Riverbend Community Good Bank in Alton.

    According to a press release, Gori and Associates is donating $100 grocery gift cards to each food pantry for them to use in filling in the gaps as well as offering a staff member to go out and pick up food from area participating law firms.

    Participating firms are also offering employees the opportunity to wear jeans or flip flops in exchange for food donations, the release states.
