SPRINGFIELD — The Salvation Army in Springfield says it’s food pantry supply is running low.
On Saturday, the non-profit hosted a food drive with Taco Bell to re-stock the pantry.
For every non-perishable food can donated, people got a free taco card.
Over 2,000 cans were donated at the Taco Bell on West Republic Road.
Jeff Smith with the Salvation Army says the new client choice program has made the store very busy, and more people are taking food.
If you missed today’s event that ends at 8 p.m., he’s asking the community to give anything you can, but canned meats and box dinners help a lot.
Smith says without the communities help, the Salvation Army can’t help those in need.
