Fighting Hunger. Feeding Families. That’s what Central Illinois FOOD4ALL is all about - communities serving together to help neighbors in need.

 

August 1st kicks off FOOD4ALL, a month long event to raise funds and food supplies to benefit local families and area food pantries through the distribution of goods by Midwest Food Bank. Ready to fight hunger and feed families? Start fundraising August 1st! Checks should be made payable to Midwest Food Bank. Deliver funds raised on Saturday, August 27th and Sunday, August 28th to one of our 19 participating Kroger, Hy-Vee, and Aldi locations. Every dollar you raise helps fight hunger and feed families!

 

Register your fundraiser today. Host a dinner party and ask your friends to donate instead of bringing a dish. Walk or run a specified distance and have family members sponsor your effort. Ignite a workplace competition, ask employees to donate their loose change. “Do not withhold good from those who deserve it, when it is in your power to act.  Do not say to your neighbor, ‘Come back later; I’ll give it tomorrow’ – when you now have it with you.”  Proverbs 3:27-28
