University of Illinois Extension Program Aims to Improve Food Pantries

ILLINOIS (RFD) — If you lead or work at a local food pantry, a University of Illinois Extension program this month could be a great resource to boost your operation.

Terri Miller-Casey is Extension Director for the U of I Extension in Logan, Menard, and Sangamon Counties. She indicates a program coming this month will provide anyone who may lead a food pantry or volunteers at one with great resources and information on improving its service to its community.

For Miller-Casey, there are going to be several benefits for this program. Getting connected with other food pantry operators to getting food handlers licenses and even increasing access to fresh fruits and vegetables will all be a part of this program.

The conferences are on March 9 in Oglesby and then March 17 in Springfield. Get more information by visiting extension.illinois.edu.
