Taylorville Kiwanis Raises Equivalent of Nearly 19,000 Pounds of Food for Taylorville Food Pantry

Officials with the Taylorville Food Pantry have notified the Taylorville Kiwanis Club, that club members raised the equivalent of almost 19-thousand pounds of food between non-perishable food and cash donations received, during their drive-thru Donation Days each Saturday in May, July, and September in front of the Miller Media Group studios in Taylorville.


Each of those 3 months, Kiwanis members asked the public for food and cash to be donated to the local Food Pantry.  


Food Pantry co-executive director Amy Hagen has previously indicated that due to the coronavirus outbreak, many in the Taylorville community have either lost their jobs or are working at reduced hours, causing the demand for food to be greater than ever.


Donations of non-perishable food or cash to the Taylorville Food Pantry, are always welcome.  For more details, go to taylorvillefoodpantry-dot-com.
