The Rochelle Christian Food Pantry will be distributing holiday food boxes today following the 8th annual 2-Ton Thanksgiving Drive sponsored by Newstalk 1060 and "The Coyote"
The food boxes will be given to needy familites between 10 and noon at Anderson Plumbing and Heating on 1st Avenue in Rochelle.
Around 35 hundred dollars was donated this year which will be used to purchase turkeys for the area families along with other food items.
More food items were also donated this year by area residents than in 2012.
The holiday food boxes will be available today on a first come, first served basis and do not count against the regular distribution from Rochelle Christian Food Pantry.
