Cahokia Community Basket is a nonprofit food pantry that feeds more than 300 families per week in St. Clair County.
How to help
Organizers are looking for groups or individuals to organize food drives or make monetary donations, so they can fill Christmas boxes to feed about 150 low-income families during the holiday season this year. The food pantry is in search of turkeys, hams or whole chickens, boxed stuffing, corn, green beans, cake mix and icing, and instant mashed potatoes.
If you are interested in coordinating a food drive or would like to make a donation, call Christina Walker at 618-332-4280 or email C.Walker_4ccb@yahoo.com. Cahokia Community Basket is located at 200 W. Third St. in Cahokia.
