BOURBONNAIS — The Secret Food Pantry will host its next mobile pop-up event from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday in the Bourbonnais Municipal Center parking lot at 700 Main St. NW.

The pantry’s founder and organizer, MaryLu Krueger, said anyone in need can come for food as 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.

Take Illinois Route 102 (Main Street NW) and turn on Stratford Drive East.

Follow event signage to William Latham Sr. 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.
