How Food Banks Are Coping With COVID

The food bank is always important but never quite like a time as COVID. Adam Handy partner resource coordinator with the Central Illinois Foodbank and Amy Hagen is the co-coordinator of the Taylorville Food Bank. Handy says getting resources has been hard as the need has increased. 


Hagen says the Food Bank wouldn’t be anywhere without the help from the Central Illinois Foodbank.



Taking a look at the numbers, Handy says that the number is growing due to COVID but people want to help.



It’s thanks to those donations that the Central Illinois Foodbank is able to get out fresh produce including fruits and vegetables.



Adam Handy and Amy Hagen appeared as guests on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
