Local Rotary Clubs donate fresh citrus to Foodbank

The Rotary Club of Springfield (Downtown) and the Springfield Sunrise Rotary Club offered the option, during their annual citrus sale, to purchase a box of oranges to be donated to Central Illinois Foodbank. It is the sixth year the Foodbank has received citrus donations from the Rotary Clubs. In the first year of citrus donations, 2,000 pounds of fresh citrus was donated; this year, over 4,300 pounds of fresh oranges found their way onto tables of our neighbors.
