Mobile Rx Pantry Program

FHN and the Northern Illinois Food Pantry are helping get a healthy “dose” of good food to those who need it. This free program will distribute healthy produce, milk, eggs, and frozen and canned meats to qualified participants on a regular basis.

Mobile Rx Pantry Program

In accordance with Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) guidelines, FHN is postponing or cancelling all larger nonessential events until further notice.

Classes & Events
OCT24 Drug Take-Back Event at Freeport Police Department, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Drug Take-Back Event at Freeport Police Department, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
FHN Family Counseling Center, the Freeport Police Department, and Stateline Area Crime Stoppers are partnering with the State of Illinois and local and national law enforcement agencies to give the public a chance to help prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.

Bring pills for disposal between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 24 to the Freeport Police Department, 320 W. Exchange Street in Freeport. This will be a drive-through collection event and proper COVID-19 precautions will be taken. (The site cannot accept liquids or needles/sharps, only pills or patches.) The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

Unused prescription medications thrown in the trash can be retrieved and abused or illegally sold. Dumping or flushing unused medications down the drain or toilet can contaminate the groundwater supply. The best way to dispose of old medications is to bring them to a take-back event.

Information on drug use and abuse and other health-related topics will be available at the event.
