To address the increased food demand in Kendall County while also raising awareness for mental health and substance use, the Health Department is running an extended food drive to bring awareness to National Prevention Week (NPW)— a week where communities and organizations across the country come together to raise awareness about the importance of substance use prevention and positive mental health. The goal is to partner with local organizations to create accessible areas to drop off donated goods for the Kendall County Community Food Pantry. Other preventative measures include distributing resources that address nutritional assistance, housing assistance, and treatment options for mental and substance use. The Kendall County Health Department will be running the extended food drive from now until June 30th. Food and other items can be dropped off at the Health department or here, at West Lisbon Church in Newark, IL. The Kendall County food pantry is also accepting monetary donations here.
