After major food drives conducted by the Postal Service workers in May, school or other groups, and holiday drives, volunteers are especially needed to lend a hand in shelving goods. In fact, throughout the year, volunteers–individuals or groups–are very welcome to help us keep our supplies neatly arranged. Contact the Township Office to arrange a convenient time.

Pantry Plants Garden Project
In the Spring to Fall growing season, the Township has a "Pantry Plants Garden Project." Families are encouraged to join together in this project to provide fresh food to supplement the Food Pantry. Volunteers work the soil, plant donated plants, weed and till, and harvest.

Pantry Plants Garden 2016

Since its inception in summer 2006, the Park District of Highland Park has generously loaned the garden space in Woodridge Park in west Highland Park, and Anton's Fruit Ranch has supplied young vegetables of our choosing for planting. We are very grateful, and so are our client beneficiaries, who are also invited to help with the chores.

Get "down and dirty" with the Township this year! Make it a family or organization's community project: help work the garden at Woodridge Park. Contact the Township Office by email or phone 847-432-3240 to schedule a time.

Volunteers Needed! Ample rewards included! Fresh Air, Sunshine, Good Company, Good Deeds! Join us every Wednesday and Saturday morning all summer long at Woodridge Park 150 Barberry Road, Highland Park. Get Directions. On Wednesdays 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. and Saturdays 9:00 am to Noon.

And, if your personal garden provides more than you can consume, why not donate fresh-picked produce to our Food Pantry? We're open weekdays M-F 8:30am to 4:30pm.
