Damp winter weather last Thursday night did not stop over 370 Christian County residents from coming to the Central Illinois Food Bank - Mobile Food Pantry, held at the Taylorville Fire Department. Central Illinois Food Bank Board President Amy Hagen says they weren’t sure how the event would work out:
Ten Thousand pounds of food was brought in from the Food Bank Warehouse in Springfield. Viddy's Cab Service of Taylorville provided rides to people FREE of charge to and from the Mobile Food Pantry. The Mobile Food Pantry was held from 5-7 pm, and was on a first come first serve basis. This is the 6th mobile food pantry in Christian County since 2010.
