Mobile Food Pantry Coming To GES

Bond County residents will be able to visit the Central Illinois mobile food pantry Saturday morning when it stops at the Greenville Elementary School.

Krista Lisser, public relations manager for Central Illinois Foodbank, told WGEL the mobile pantry will bring 10 to 12 thousand pounds of food to distribute to those in need.

Lisser said no ID is required and those picking up food should bring a box or laundry basket. You will need to let officials know how many people are in your household to determine the amount of food distributed.

Lisser said over 2,300 people in Bond County don’t know where their next meal will come from.
