CENTRAL ILLINOIS - The Central Illinois Foodbank has announced that it will bring its mobile pantry to two local communities on July 22.

Officials say they will bring a kids mobile pantry to MacArthur Park Apartments in Springfield.  The pantry will open at 12:00 p.m., and will provide food for Springfield children in need.  Additionally, a mobile pantry will be brought to Taylorville High School the same day.  This pantry will open at 6:00 p.m., and will help feed some of the estimated 4,900 Christian County residents who are food insecure.
