WHY: “I recognize that soaring inflation is causing pain on household budgets throughout Illinois. Over the last year the cost of food has risen nearly 12 percent according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Lower income families spend approximately 77 percent of their income on necessities. Inflation is eroding the savings of many Americans. In fact, the costs of milk and eggs are up 11 percent, meat is up 14 percent and fruits and vegetables 8 percent. I see and hear the pain of my fellow citizens and I must help.” Said Dr. Wilson.
Dr. Wilson stated: I am proud to partner with Seafood City, Montrose Deli and Shop and Save stores to provide free grocery to families. Today’s donation impacts the largest Filipino grocery store (Seafood City) and one of the largest Polish community grocery stores (Montrose Deli). The donation at Shop and Save impacts all citizens. I urge our elected leaders to roll back regressive taxes that hurt our citizens.
