“Hunger Blitz” Brings Tons of Food for Illinois Valley Food Pantry

Posted by wlpo on February 1, 2016

An annual food drive will help to keep the shelves stocked at the Illinois Valley Food Pantry.

Members of the Utica Knights of Columbus along with students from St. Bede Academy fanned out Saturday at La Salle and Peru grocery stores collecting food as part of their annual “Hunger Blitz.” The group ended up collecting over 4,000 pounds of donated food and more than $2,000.

The food and cash was collected in about eight hours Saturday morning and afternoon.
