URBANA -- The shelves are stocked at the Eastern Illinois Foodbank. It just got enough food to feed more than 150-people.

The full meals include ham, vegetables, rolls and even dessert. County Market, the Champaign County Chamber of Commerce and the Champaign County Farm Bureau donated the food.

Officials at the farm bureau hope the donations send a strong message. They say, in a typical year, an Illinois farmer grows enough food to feed 161 people for the entire year.
