Woodridge-based Skeleton Key Brewery has committed to supporting West Suburban Community Pantry in Woodridge and Wheaton-based The GardenWorks Project in their efforts to fight food insecurity in the regional community and help ensure our neighbors have access to fresh, healthy food.
The Skeleton Key team will be hosting volunteer days at the Pantry to help with restocking, sorting, and packing food.
Participants may bring their home grown produce to Brewery drop-off events twice a month through the growing season to receive Skeleton Key Taproom perks.
“Food security is something we tend to take for granted, and it’s a bigger issue than I think a lot of people realize,” says Skeleton Key owner Emily Slayton. “We believe everyone should have access to fresh, healthy food. We’ve always been a community-focused business and knowing that the West Suburban Community Pantry is such a vital resource for so many people right in our community means that by supporting their efforts, we’re also supporting the needs of our neighbors.”
Skeleton Key is also planning a special beer to benefit these nonprofit partners later this year, growing some of the ingredients at the GardenWorks Project’s garden at the DuPage County Fairgrounds.
