Windhorst: National Food Bank Day – Learn More about Local Resources

METROPOLIS – State Rep. Patrick Windhorst is reminding residents that today is “National Food Bank Day”. There are multiple food banks operating in Southern Illinois. Food banks provide a crucial service to our communities as they help families across the state fight food insecurity and find resources for living a healthy, happy life.

“If you are able, I want to encourage you to consider donating to a local food pantry this National Food Bank Day to help children and adults alike. These are our friends and neighbors, and they need our help,” Windhorst said.
