EMERGENCY FOOD ASSISTANCE

 

DUE TO INCREDIBLE AND SUDDEN ECONOMIC HARDSHIP FOR THE FAMILIES OF CHILDREN WE SERVE IN CHICAGO AND CICERO, INNER CITY IMPACT IS PROVIDING WEEKLY FOOD ASSISTANCE TO 50 – 70 FAMILIES IN NEED. WE PLAN TO PROVIDE EMERGENCY FOOD ASSISTANCE AND OTHER AID TO FAMILIES THROUGH MAY AND EXPAND THE PROGRAM TO AS MANY AS 100 FAMILIES PER WEEK AS THE LORD PROVIDES FUNDING AND OPPORTUNITY TO DO SO. OUR FOCUS IS ON ICI FAMILIES WE KNOW HAVE ECONOMIC HARDSHIP AND FAMILIES WITH WHICH WE HAVE A LONG-STANDING, GOSPEL-CENTERED RELATIONSHIP.
