One of the many ills facing those across the country and here in Central Illinois is the issue of hunger. September is hunger action month, and the Central Illinois Food bank wants those in the area to make the effort to help their neighbors who may be suffering from hunger, and take steps to fight back.
Krista Lisser with the Central Illinois Food Bank appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show, and suggested ways for people to donate to the cause, adding that their help makes a bigger impact than they may think.
With an abundance of scams and charity organizations out there who are more concerned with profits than with helping those in need, people can be skeptical of whether or not their donated dollars are actually going to help. Lisser says the Central Illinois Food Bank has been named a four star charity, where 97 cents of every dollar goes directly towards helping feed the hungry.
