Food for 300 families planned at Park Avenue Baptist Church during Food Distribution Friday

MT. VERNON, IL — Park Avenue Baptist Church in Mt. Vernon is partnering with the Central Illinois Food Bank of Springfield for a drive-through food giveaway to all those that attend this Friday starting at 11am.

Assistant Director of the Food Pantry Carol Hogue says there is enough food to feed 300 families and there are no financial eligibility requirements.

This will take the place of the church’s normal Friday food distribution. You can begin lining up at 10:30 and Hogue asks that you make room in the trunk or back of your vehicle so the volunteers can easily place the boxes inside.
