September is Hunger Action Month

Learn - Commit - Speak Up 

Hunger impacts people in every corner of the country, including 100,000 of our neighbors in central and southern Illinois. As we recover from a two-year pandemic, and with the rising costs of food and fuel, many families are having to make difficult financial choices. Every day, families are having to choose between, utility bills, childcare costs, medical expenses, and more. 

One thing is clear, however: food shouldn't be an impossible choice. 

That’s why Central Illinois Foodbank joins Feeding America® food banks nationwide this September to take part in Hunger Action MonthTM and inspire people to take action and bring attention to the reality of food insecurity in America. 

Central Illinois Foodbank fights hunger 365 days a year. During Hunger Action Month, AND throughout the rest of the year, we invite you to join in this fight with us. How can you help?
