This fund help support the efforts of Rush Copley’s Food Insecurities Committee which works on addressing the significant challenges of food insecurity in our community. The committee has established the Rush Copley Promise Pantry which provides pre packed bags with non-perishable food items. The food items are purchased at cost through a partnership with a local grocery store - so an $11 donation purchases a full bag with 5-7 meals. Each recipient also receives a reference list of local food pantries. The pilot Promise Pantry at this time works with patients that are seen at the hospital, in the Cancer Care Center as well as in our pediatric offices.
The pantry gets its name from the Rush Copley Promise – a commitment we make to all patients, their families and guests to do everything possible to provide them with compassionate and exceptional care.
