Demand at area food pantries continues to rise. In Illinois, 1 in 7 adults and 1 in 5 children are at risk of hunger and lack access to the food they need to lead healthy, active lives. People throughout central Illinois need your help. Last year, the United Way's Day of Caring Food Drive collected more than 23,000 lbs of food for families in need.  We hope you will participate again this year!

  • Collection Day is Friday, September 7, 2018 from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm
  • Collection site is at the Peoria Civic Center (marquee parking lot, corner of Kumpf and Jefferson)
  • Companies and organizations may register in advance for the food drive here, and will be assigned a drop-off window on September7 and volunteers will help unload your vehicle.
  • Suggested donation items listed here.
