DHD to distribute food boxes in Mt. Vernon this weekend

MT. VERNON, IL — The Disaster Household Distribution (DHD) program will be distributing food boxes this weekend in Mt. Vernon. The Central Illinois Foodbank will be handing out boxes from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the Mt. Vernon Township High School on North Wells Bypass.

The program allows Central Illinois Foodbank to increase access to food for families in need during this unprecedented time. DHD provides boxed foods to households using existing inventories of USDA-purchased foods.

Each household will receive pre-packed boxes with a variety of foods including program food and privately donated products. These distributions are designed to respond to the growing need in our communities and are open to everyone. There are no financial eligibility requirements for these distributions.

The Foodbank is working hard to feed seniors, children and families, including those who may have been furloughed or recently become unemployed, in our communities.
