Community Partnerships

From converting parking lots into food distribution sites, to donating truckloads of food, or providing crucial grant funds, our partners are building stronger communities.

Through a ConAgra Capacity Grant, three rural agencies received additional refrigeration units. This allows for the storage and safe distribution of fresh foods. With this grant we are addressing the increased need in rural areas.

Union Baptist stepped in to help distribute hundreds of “Farmers to Families” boxes in its parking lot. Reverend McJunkins said that this was “exactly what they envisioned” when the congregation purchased the location.

Illinois Children’s Healthcare Foundation (ILCHF) provided funds to purchase food for youth. Noting the impact, Sheila Wilson-Madden of St. Patrick’s School in Springfield “express(ed) abundant thanks for the hearty food boxes”.
