CITI State and Local HHS Associate Director, Rachael Kerrick-Brucker got in on the fun packing boxes for local food pantries recently at the Midwest Food Bank in Central Illinois. Rachael, along with members of the Bloomington, IL. St. Mary’s Church Youth Group packed boxes and labeled canned goods to be shared with individuals and families in need through various pantries around town. All that packing warranted a stop for ice cream when the work was done.
