America's Hunger 3
The Illinois Food Bank Association, a coalition of eight America's Second Harvest food banks covering every part of our state, is working every day to provide food for hungry people. Each year, the members of the association provide approximately 80 million pounds of food to those in need. It feeds nearly 1 million people each year, and nearly 40 percent of the families served are working households.
