Central Illinois Foodbank becoming more energy efficient
The Central Illinois Foodbank is getting a donation to become more energy efficient.
Monday, 126 LED lamps were donated by Springfield Electric Supply Company and GE and installed by Anderson Electric Inc.
Officials say donations and partnerships like this help the foodbank save money and make it easier to help those in need.
"We have a strong focus on getting out healthy food and fresh produce into the community, so the savings through these lamps will help us get these out to our 21 counties," said Ashley Earnest, Central Illinois Foodbank public relations manager.
Officials say they reached out to Anderson Electric after noticing some lights had gone out in some of the foodbank's storage rooms.
