Be one of the 400+ volunteers who help to support 200+ food pantries through distribution of goods by Midwest Food Bank and many families through South Side Mission at the Central Illinois Food 4All Food Drive on Saturday, September 20th from 10 AM to 5 PM. Central Illinois Food 4All has partnered up with EVERY Kroger location in the area, giving us a total of 11 locations collecting food for those in need!
How can you help?
PROMOTE: Getting involved is as easy as word of mouth! Help us by sharing and talking about the food drive to friends, family and co-workers.
PARTICIPATE: Stop by one of the 11 Kroger locations (Peoria - 5 locations, Bartonville, Chillicothe, East Peoria, Morton, Pekin and Washington) and donate dry or canned goods!

The food drive is timed specifically to help these families with back-to-school expenses when resources are already drained.
