FLASH GRANT – Feed Your Community 🍎🥕🌽🥗🍆🍇

May 04, 2022 -

In the United States, nearly 13.8 million households, including 1 in 5 children, suffer from food insecurity—not having sufficient food, or food of adequate quality, to meet one's basic needs. For these neighbors in need, hunger is their "constant companion." Local food banks and outreach programs play a critical role in fighting hunger. These organizations bring volunteers together to make a difference in the lives of the people they help as well as their own lives. To read about some of these volunteer efforts, click here. 


The Feed Your Community flash grant supports six hunger relief organizations that have been recommended by Great Hearts Community members--Capuchin Soup Kitchen, Liberty's Kitchen, Northern Illinois Food Bank, People's Resource Center (Westmont), Street Angels, and The Friendship Center.
