A Jacksonville retirement home is hosting a mobile food pantry tonight.

Sharon Clayton from Knollwood Retirement Village says last year’s drive featured a great selection of food and a busy crowd.

Clayton explains where you can pick up the food.

“Where Knollwood is, there is our big building for storage. It will be there. They will come through the lineup and the building. We will have people there at each area to give the choices they would like to have. We will have shopping  carts that they can take to the cars,” says Clayton.

Illinois College students and many other in the community plan to volunteer their time at the mobile food pantry. Anyone else interested in helping out should contact Knollwood at 245-5101.

Home Instead Senior Care and Williamson Funeral Home are co-sponsoring the mobile food pantry.

Clayton encourages individuals attending the event to bring baskets, wagons or something to carry the items. The food pantry is free and open to the public and starts at 5 p.m.
