HEALTHY FOOD TEAM
The Central Illinois Foodbank is teaming up with the SIU Center for Family Medicine to distribute healthy food for the Sangamon County community. At 5 p.m. Thursday, March 23, the Healthy Foods Distribution will take place at the SIU Center for Family Medicine, located at 520 N. Fourth St. in Springfield. Members of the Springfield Police Department will be offering their time to pass out food. Currently, there are almost 27,000 people in Sangamon County who don’t know where their next meal is coming from. That said, the event, sponsored by the BRANDT Foundation, is a unique opportunity to provide nourishment to those in need. For more information, contact Krista Lisser, Central Illinois Foodbank public relations manager.
