Some food pantries had a chance to stock up on Saturday.

Cook County Commissioner Deborah Sims collected non-perishable items then passed them onto the pantries. State Sen. James Meeks, Dr. Willie Wilson and Impact Family Center were also involved.

Sims said events like this are important because so many pantries need food.
