Central Illinois Foodbank: Feeding our Neighbors for 40 Years

On June 7, 1982, Central Illinois Foodbank officially opened its doors by accepting its first donation, consisting of 10,000 pounds of apple cobbler mix. When it first opened, the Foodbank operated out of limited leased space at the Brother James Monastery. However, by the end of its first year, the Foodbank was distributing 65,000 pounds of product per month to 100 agencies spanning across 24 counties.
