The Peoria Anti-Hunger Coalition hosts the 2014 Foodshare Canathon. This is the 30th annual canathon! In the past, more than 15,000,000 pounds of food has been donated to Peoria food shelters.


CANATHON bags were inserted in the Peoria Journal Star on Monday, March 3, 2014. We ask recipients to fill the bags with nonperishable and canned food.


Suggested food items include canned meat or tuna, soups, stews, chili, peanut butter, vegetables, fruit, and boxed dinners or macaroni and cheese.


Drop boxes will be in place at all area KROGER SUPERMARKETS, CURVES, PEORIA FIRE STATIONS, SUBWAY, and WCIC studios.
