Harvest Celebration History

The first Harvest Celebration was held on November 6, 1999 at the Illini County Club. In the inaugural year the Celebration hosted 130 guests and featured six sponsors. That humble beginning has sparked great success. In 16 years the event has grown into the Foodbank’s largest fundraiser with over 30 sponsors in 2016. We are proud of this successful event and look forward to sharing an evening with our partners and friends to help to provide nutritious food to our neighbors.
