Food Donation
Heart of Illinois Harvest is a not-for-profit food rescue program that daily transports surplus food to local food agencies for free distribution to those in need.

We are “powered” by our volunteers, our Board of Directors, our in-kind services, and our commitment to eliminating waste of much needed food. With this additional food many agencies are able to lower their food budgets and fund additional services.

Grants, donations and in-kind services allow us to maintain our two vehicles and one paid part-time employee.
