If you have growing family with kids, then need for keeping your shelves and their tummies full is always there.

The Summer Family Markets in Loves Park are offering help in the form of free groceries for all families.

WREX shares that the Summer Family Market in partnership with the Northern Illinois Food Bank and Rockford Park District and Community Action group will be offering to help feed families in the stateline by offering a market for them to pick up groceries for free.

There will be 3 different dates at Wantz Park in Loves Park where families with children under 18 can come and shop, provided that they bring their own bags. "No registration or documentation is necessary."

The dates and times are as follows:

June 25th from 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

July 13th from 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

August 9th from 4 p.m. - 6 p.m.

Wantz Park is located at 600 Clifford Ave. in Loves Park.

What a cool idea.

I know several families that this would come in handy.

Please pass this on to those you know that may need help in keeping their shelves full in feeding their families.
