There is a serious defect in the thinking of someone who wants -- more than anything else -- to become rich. As long as they don't have the money, it'll seem like a worthwhile goal. Once they do, they'll understand how important other things are -- and have always been.

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.

You always succeed in producing a result.

Their desire is to assist people, so that they are able to cope better with daily circumstances, and living conditions.

Their programs include educating those who are interested in working with those in need. They would like to expose those who are trained to go on short term trips into places where there is the most need. Also, to meet where possible, the physical needs through the distribution of food.

Nothing will ever be attempted if all possible objections must be first overcome.
