What was once impossible now summons us to dismantle the walls between ourselves and our sisters and brothers, to dissolve the distinctions between flesh and spirit, to transcend the present limits of time and matter, to find, at last, not wealth or power but the ecstasy (so long forgotten) of commonplace, unconditional being. For the atom's soul is nothing but energy. Spirit blazes in the dullest of clay. The life of every woman or man-the heart of it-is pure and holy joy.
-- George Leonard

Services:
The Eastern Illinois Foodbank exists to alleviate hunger in eastern Illinois by providing a reliable source of food for the hungry through cooperation with a network of food pantries and agencies.

Every day, there are more than 130,000 men, women and children across eastern Illinois who may not have enough to eat. Luckily, there are also hundreds of agencies–from small church food pantries to large homeless shelters–working diligently to help struggling families make ends meet. The Foodbank’s primary function is to provide a consistent and adequate source of food for these agencies. To do that, the Foodbank acquires discounted and donated food and grocery products – bread, canned goods, frozen foods, personal hygiene products – from local stores, distributors and food manufacturers. Working with more than 220 agencies & programs across 14 counties, the Foodbank helps make sure these agencies have access to low-cost, nutritious food so they can adequately serve their clients. As they like to say, “they put the soup in soup kitchens and the food in food pantries.” The Eastern Illinois Foodbank is part of a network of more than 200 foodbanks nationally called “Feeding America.” Together, they serve every single county in the United States, and they make up the largest domestic hunger relief organization in the country.
