NORMAL — Those facing food insecurity in Bloomington-Normal can receive relief through an upcoming distribution event.
The Eastern Illinois Foodbank is hosting a giveaway at Normal Community West High School, 501 N. Parkside Road, for families in need on Oct. 16 from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.
The event is open to McLean County residents and attendees are encouraged to bring boxes or bags for transportation. People are encouraged to pre-register at eifclient.com. Registration does not guarantee a place in line.
Foodmobile is a mobile food pantry system seeking to bring nutritious food to areas of need. It is supported by Jewel-Osco Nourishing Neighbors.
Income thresholds follow the Emergency Food Assistance Program eligibility guidelines that went into effect March 25, 2020. Visit eifoodbank.org for more information on upcoming distribution events.
