United Way of Decatur & Mid-Illinois (UWDMI) and our partners, Central Illinois Foodbank, The Community Foundation of Macon County, Neuhoff Media, and Crossing Healthcare are distributing 400 free food boxes to families in our community on Saturday, Aug. 8.
The event will be in the Decatur Civic Center Parking lot starting at 10am until all food boxes are gone. It is first come, first serve. Volunteers will be there to direct traffic flow and load boxes into vehicles. Food boxes are only being distributed to vehicles; no walk-ups will be allowed. There is no pre-registration for this event.
This is our second food box distribution for families in need this year. We held a very successful first distribution event on July 20 where we gave out 500 food boxes.
