The holiday season can be difficult, and all of Mid-West Family Springfield knows and understands this.
With this and the community always in our minds and hearts, we wished to provide further access to the materials and resources necessary to ensure that everyone can enjoy the bounty of their town, state, and nation this time of year – no matter the holiday you celebrate or the beliefs you hold.
In this spirit, you can find all the food pantries and soup kitchens in your designated area at this link or below; Sangamon County is in PSA 7, for those curious parties.
With Thanksgiving and so many other special celebrations and days present and up ahead, food insecurity is as prominent as ever across Springfield, Sangamon County, Illinois, the nation, and beyond.
And if you have the resources you need to have a merry set of days with family and friends, food and drink, consider donating your time and resources to those who could use each.
From Mid-West Family Springfield, WMAY, WQLZ, WNNS, and The Lake, we wish you and yours only the most wonderful of days, weeks, and years ahead; bon appétit.
