Hunger Knows No Season

Springfield News & Sun sponsors the annual “Hunger Knows No Season” Food Relief drive in the months of November and December to benefit the Second Harvest Food  Bank which distributes food to Clark, Champaign and Logan Counties pantries, soup kitchens and shelters to feed the hungry.  A recent National Hunger Study shows 4,414 unique clients in our three counties depend on emergency food providers every week. Feeding America calculates the cost of a meal in our area today at $2.50, however, using the power of the food bank network, every dollar donated can be stretched into four meals to someone in need.
