Taylorville Food Pantry and Central Illinois Food Bank Ready To Address Hunger

Central Illinois Food Bank and Taylorville Food Pantry are readying for the start of the new school year.


Public Relations Manager for the food bank Tim Kirsininkas says they’re up for the task to feed all children in central Illinois. 

Co-coordinator with the Taylorville Food Pantry Amy Hagen says they’ve had a busy summer. 

Central Illinois Food Bank’s new Partner Resource Coordinator Brock Denherder says that he can see the prevailing need for food in the region. 

Hagen says that Taylorville Community Credit Union wrapped up its “Freedom Tree Food Drive” at the end of July. She called it a success that will help the pantry serve families of school-aged children. 

Hagen, Denherder, and Kirsininkas appeared as guests on the WTIM Morning Show.
