Eastern Illinois Foodbank

Description

The Eastern Illinois Foodbank exists to alleviate hunger in eastern Illinois by providing a reliable source of food for the hungry through cooperation with a network of food pantries and agencies. The Foodbank accepts donated and discounted food from a variety of sources and distributes it to over 160 emergency food programs, such as food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters. By partnering with EIF, emergency food programs are able to save millions of dollars each year in food purchase and handling costs. These savings allow them to focus their efforts and funds on more effectively working to alleviate hunger in our area. The Foodbank also operates two ancillary programs: Healthy Futures Initiative, designed to alleviate childhood hunger, and the Foodmobile Program, which aims to increase access to emergency food for residents in rural and under-resourced communities. We fight hunger in communities throughout these 18 eastern Illinois counties:

  • Coles

  • Cumberland
