Ending Hunger Together Fund and Grants Program

The Community Foundation of Central Illinois (CFCI) is pleased to announce the Ending Hunger Together grants program to address food insecurity issues throughout central Illinois. Fueled by $40,000 in grant funding, the new program combines an emphasis on healthy food access, community education, and economic development to create a framework of collaboration.

“Studies show that nearly 45,000 adults and children in the tri-county area lack access to enough food for an active, healthy life,” says Mark Roberts, CFCI Chief Executive Officer. “The Ending Hunger Together grants program will take a bold approach to this growing problem by addressing the root causes of food insecurity. Thank you to the generous donors and community partners who helped the Community Foundation create this important initiative.”
