Sandwiches were cooked on a little pancake griddle for farmers and oil field workers and neighborhood friends and family! In 2003, CBS morning news came and did a spot on the Sunday morning news with Bill Geist. Terry Hammond from Casey, IL started the Moonshine Lunchrun in 2004 with only 10 guys showing up the first year and it grew yearly thereafter with the biggest year being 2017, serving 3362 sandwiches in a few hours! The Moonshine Lunchrun ended in 2018. Over the years we have been in several magazines- Midwest Living, Women’s World, Rider Magazine and several others.
