  • Served an estimated 1.4 million people in Illinois in 2011- a staggering 61% increase since the recession began.

  • Helped more than 2,600 people apply for SNAP benefits, bringing in an estimated $5.6 million in federal assistance.

  • Provided 2.9 million meals to children through after-school or summer programs, back-pack programs and Kids Cafes.
