Free Food Distribution Scheduled in Jacksonville


Jacksonville – A free food giveaway will be held at noon Friday, Oct. 29, at the Jacksonville Police Department substation, 110 W. Walnut St.

The distribution will continue while supplies last. No preregistration is required to receive food. Walk-up service is available as well as the drive-thru option.

Jacksonville Memorial Hospital’s Healthy Communities Collaborative and the Central Illinois Foodbank are the sponsors of the event.

Those who plan to receive food should wear masks and those using the drive-thru should clear space in the trunks of their vehicles so volunteers can safely load the food.

Volunteers from Healthy Communities Collaborative and the Jacksonville Rotary and Kiwanis Clubs will be on hand to distribute the food.
