08/28/2020: Bank of Hillsboro Donates $5,000 to Goshen Market Foundation’s Beet Box
EDWARDSVILLE – Bank of Hillsboro, in partnership with Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago, donated $5,000 to the Goshen Market Foundation’s Beet Box to help expand the outreach for the mobile farmer’s market and bring fresh food to more communities.
The Beet Box, which was created by the local nonprofit, Goshen Market Foundation, is committed to bringing affordable, fresh produce to people who might not otherwise have access to it. The mobile food market delivers roughly 1,500 lbs. of produce every year serving Madison and St. Clair counties. It visits neighborhoods, schools and community centers in the region that are currently lacking access to fresh produce as a result of transportation limitations, health issues or food-desert conditions.
