Farm store giving back to foodbanks

Posted:

Champaign - A farm store is giving back to provide hundreds of thousands of meals for the hungry.

 

Birkey's Farm Store partnered with the Eastern Illinois Foodbank and six other local foodbanks to provide 600,000 meals.

 

Customers, residents and store employees can donate at any of the company's 13 locations with cash or check, or by adding a donation to their total purchase. Donations can also be made through Birkey's website. Proceeds from each Birkey's location will be allocated to agencies in that store's local community. More than 550 agencies-food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters-will benefit from the drive.

 

The Birkey's 60 Day Hunger Drive is currently underway and runs through April 4th at every Birkey's location.
