Non-profits with experience battling food insecurity could get 40-thousand dollars in grant money to help support those efforts.
It’s the second Ending Hunger Together program, matching those deserving groups with funds from the Community Foundation of Central Illinois.
“So, it may be one $40,000 grant. It may be several smaller grants. We really just don’t know. And we’re comfortable with that. Because we want to make sure that we’re making just the right investments and funding just the right organizations doing just the right work in our community,” said Mark Roberts, Pres/CEO of the Community Foundation of Central Illinois.
They estimate some 45,000 people in the tri-county area are considered food insecure.
The grant applications have several due dates, starting with a letter by November 29
A committee in Peoria will review them and the grant awards will be made in March.
