SPRINGFIELD — The Central Illinois Foodbank is bringing in more donations thanks to area businesses. 20-participated in the Corporate Food Fight Challenge.
Nearly 10,000 pounds of food was collected and close to $25,000. That’s not all. They also clocked in more than 350 volunteer hours at the foodbank.
This year’s winner, Hickory Point Bank and Trust, says the reward isn’t the recognition, but giving back to those in need. The donations will be distributed to 120 partnering pantries around Central Illinois.
