Support your community.
We can end hunger locally by increasing access to healthy nutritious foods that families love. Every dollar you donate equals about 2 meals worth of food.
49 people in the United States turned to food programs last year. And in Illinois 1 in 9 children are at risk. Though many of us may not realize the grave disparities that exist in our own communities, people face hunger in every county and congressional district in Illinois. They could be our neighbors, kids in our children’s classes – the possibilities go on.
