Food Insecurity Task Force

After the establishment of the Community & Campus Day of Service, the Office of Public Engagement recognized the need to explore longer-term solutions to food insecurity in Champaign County. We joined forces with local Rotary clubs, Eastern Illinois Foodbank, and the United Way to create a Food Insecurity Task Force. This group met with faculty from the College of ACES and the Family Resiliency Center to discuss existing research on food insecurity and is currently identifying opportunities to reduce food insecurity in the local community.
