Local farmers market fighting food insecurity in Central Illinois


In addition to providing the public with access to fresh produce and locally-made products, the Champaign-Urbana Winter Farmer’s Market is working with the Daily Bread Soup Kitchen to tackle food insecurity in C-U.

Today, Kate Metz from Daily Bread joined us to talk about the partnership, along with Lorien from Blue Moon Farm, a vendor at the Winter Market, who donates to the soup kitchen. For more details on these organizations, visit them at their respective websites below:




The Champaign-Urbana Winter Farmer’s Market is every Saturday from November through April from 8am-12pm at the Lincoln Square Mall in Urbana.
