Review from Guidestar

As an interior designer I have worked with the Oak Park River Forest Food Pantry to decorate their space and have been impressed many times at the concern of the staff and volunteers about their environment. They very much want to provide services with dignity and grace and realize that the appearance of the pantry can contribute to that objective.
Not every social service agency takes this extra step. I applaud them in their efforts and their acknowledgement that feeding the soul is an important part of feeding the body.

The Oak Park River Forest Food Pantry is an integral member of the community. They work in partnership with a wide spectrum of organizations and businesses to involve people and put a face to those needing food support. My children, as Boy Scouts, went door to door last month to collect food for the pantry. They gained a new appreciation for those not as fortunate as themselves and a pride in spending time helping those not as fortunate as themselves.

Several of us who went to college with the Executive Director were touched by her enthusiasm for the work performed by the OPRF Food Pantry. We volunteered there one morning , were given a tour, met staff and volunteers, and learned about all the services this small, but mighty not-for-profit provides. This organization is lean, creative, innovative, productive and really in tune with the needs of those they serve. They serve with respect and dignity.
