USDA’s Farm to Table program hosts a Pandemic Relief Food Distribution

October 26, 2020

On Monday, October 26, the Banterra Center hosted the Pandemic Relief Food Distribution event in partnership with the USDA’s Farm to Table program. 

The 30-pound boxes contained fresh produce, dairy products, and meat, according to Illinois State Senator Dale Fowler.

“Everyone is able to get food and there are no restrictions,” Fowler said. “It’s just an amazing program and we are fortunate to be a part of the program.”
