I'm fundraising to help solve hunger in Northern Illinois, and I'm asking YOU to join me to Bury Hunger in Lake County! Lake County is the 27th wealthiest county in the nation yet over 100,000 of our 600,000 residents experience hunger.
The Food Bank has been responding to the increased need in our communities since mid-March. In Lake County, we have provided more than 10.1 million meals, a 97% increase over the prior year.
Lake County comprises about 18% of the Food Bank’s total meal distribution.
Please join me in making a difference in the lives of the thousands of people in Northern Illinois who are hungry. The funds I raise will stay right here, in our backyard, and will fill an empty plate of a neighbor in need. Each $10,500 dollars funds a pop-up food distribution event in the county serving over 1000 families per pop-up.
Your Donation Makes an Impact:
+ Every $1 donated helps provide $8 worth of groceries for neighbors in need
+ 96% of the Food Bank's resources go to programs that feed neighbors in need
+ The Food Bank serves 13 counties in Northern Illinois, providing the equivalent of nearly 220,000 meals each day
Please consider supporting my efforts with a donation that will build hope for a family in our community! Every donation makes a difference.
