The Story

In the suburbs and across northern Illinois 425,000 PEOPLE FACE HUNGER.


Help raise $10,000 to help feed our hungry neighbors.


$15 provides a back pack containing enough food to feed three children over a weekend.
$30 provides a traditional holiday meal for a family of eight.
$100 provides $800 worth of food for neighbors in need.


September is Hunger Action Month. We invite you to join us in feeding our hungry neighbors!


Donate to help us provide more food to those in need; volunteer with us at a fun repack session at one of our three centers; help us spread the word about hunger in our local communities; and, participate in the many special Hunger Action Month activities. However you join us, we are grateful for your support. Together we can solve hunger in our community.
