Eastern Illinois Foodbank
Eastern Illinois Foodbank opened its doors in June 1983. It was formed as part of a major regional effort to develop an emergency food network in central Illinois. The foodbank's primary role is to serve as a consistent source of food and grocery products for 220 agencies and programs to serve the hungry in 14 counties. The EIF now distributes more than 6 million pounds of food annually on a budget of just over $1 million. Food distributed by the EIF now reaches more than 100,000 people annually.
