Central Illinois residents battling hunger will get a heaping helping of Mac and Cheese. Land O'Lakes, primarily known for their famous butter related products, is donating 40-thousand pounds of their Macaroni and Cheese to the Central Illinois Foodbank. It's part of Land O'Lakes First Run Program. Foodbank Executive Director Pam Molitoris says it's great to have a massive shipment of mac and cheese because of its mass appeal.
Central Illinois Foodbank serves 21 Illinois counties and distributes more than 9 million pounds of food a year.
