The Madison County Food Bank is in full swing this summer, working as usual to provide food and other necessities to those in need.
Food bank director Bobbie Rooker explained to Chamber of Commerce members recently how the food bank is a non-profit organization that operates strictly from community donations.
Donations of both non-perishable and perishable food items are accepted, including fresh produce and processed deer meat. Rooker said clients also appreciate items such as shampoo, toothpaste, soap, deodorant and other daily necessities.
Rooker said the food bank has fed 896 households, or 1,691 individuals, since June 2010.
