The holidays are a busy time for the Central Illinois Food Bank, with the majority of their food and monetary donations coming in during this time. The CIFB encourages residents in Central Illinois to take this time to donate to their local food bank or pantry, whether it's a food or monetary donation, or a donation of your time through volunteering.
Krista Lisser with the Central Illinois Foodbank says the food-centric holidays tend to lead to more donations overall.
Lisser encourages those who may not be able to make a monetary or food donation, to donate their time and volunteer at their local food pantry.
Lisser appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
