Annual food drive, April 1-29

Annual Civil Service Food Drive raises $500

The Civil Service Council's 2016 food drive raised $500 worth of food in April.

Our Annual Food Drive begins April 1 and runs through April 29.

Nonperishable, non-outdated food items will be collected and donated to a local food pantry in Bloomington-Normal. Items most needed are canned meats, canned fruits, canned vegetables, boxed dinners such as Hamburger Helper, macaroni and cheese, noodles, peanut butter, regular rice or or quick cook rice, cold cereal, sugar, flour, cooking oil, and vegetable oil. To donate, find a red bin closest to you.

This year, food donations will benefit the food pantry at Western Avenue Community Center. Serving up to 400 people per month in West Bloomington, the pantry has provided this valuable service to our community for the past five decades.
