Beyond Hunger is serious about its mission: harnessing the power of communities to end hunger. Together with partners like the village of Oak Park, they create collaborative solutions for hunger and nutrition security that forge a more racially equitable food system.
For over 40 years, Beyond Hunger has provided food and resources for people in our community. They draw on community members’ knowledge and skills to shape programming that delivers resources people need to live healthy active lives. In addition to providing food to families, Beyond Hunger also provides summer meals for school children, connects individuals to valuable benefits like SNAP dollars, offers nutrition education and cooking classes to combat chronic illness, and delivers groceries to homebound older adults. As an organization, they focus on health and nutrition, intentionally offering food that nourishes and sustains — and that families love to eat.
