BennettFoodKitchenCHAMPAIGN– To raise awareness about the importance of community food pantries and soup kitchens, Senator Scott Bennett (D-Champaign) will be serving lunch at the Daily Bread Soup Kitchen.

Bennett is currently participating in the SNAP Challenge to experience what life is like for millions of low-income Americans living on an average daily allowance of $4.40. Many of our neighbors are experiencing difficult times and rely on area soup kitchens to receive a decent meal.

However, due to the budget impasse, soup kitchens in Champaign-Urbana are left no choice but to close their doors. The Daily Bread Soup Kitchen will be attempting to serve additional families without additional funding.

This news comes in light of the Daily Bread Soup Kitchen’s recent purchase of a new facility to allow them to serve more residents. However, they still need to raise $300,000 for renovation costs.

Those interested in sending a tax deductible donation can send donations to Daily Bread Soup Kitchen at P.O. Box 648, Champaign, IL 61824.

Date: Wednesday, September 23, 2015

Time: 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Location: Daily Bread Soup Kitchen, 124 W White St, Champaign, IL (Inside New Covenant Fellowship Church, corner of Randolph and White)
