Hinsdale Farmer’s Market: Whole Foods Market & HCS Family Service’s Fresh Produce Day
Monday, August 19th
9:00 AM - 1:00 PM
HInsdale farmers Market, Donation

Whole Foods Market Hinsdale and the Hinsdale Farmer’s Market are teaming up to fight hunger and provide much needed fresh produce to the Food Pantry at HCS Family Services. Last year HCS Family Services provided food for over 19,000 individuals.  This year, HCS continues to see a sharp increase in the demand for services, and those in need are eager to eat wholesome foods. Farmer’s Market shoppers will be encouraged to make a $10 donation to receive a Whole Foods Better Bag and then fill it with fresh produce donated from participating farmers.  The produce filled bags will be then donated to the food pantry and all financial donations will be used to increase purchases of nutritious food for the pantry.  Please look for our tent at the Farmer’s Market and help us give back to those in need.

To find out more about HCS and the food pantry, visit hcsfamilyservices.org
