INB Sponsors Lunch Over Spring Break

Central Illinois Foodbank along with Illinois National Bank teamed up to provide lunches for kids in need during spring break. INB has traditionally sponsored a spring break snack pantry, but this year they decided to do something a little different by sponsoring lunch at Brandon Court, April 10th-April 13th.

Sysco Donates Mobile Kitchen Cart

Central Illinois Foodbank received an early Christmas gift this holiday season. Sysco Central Illinois donated a mobile kitchen cart to the Foodbank in October to help the Foodbank further their healthy food initiative. The cart will be used to teach adults and children how to prepare and cook the food they are receiving at the Foodbank’s mobile pantries.
