Upcoming Events

Illini Fighting Hunger 4-H Food Packaging Event

January 20, 2018 (8:45 AM - 12:00 PM )

West Building at Lake Land Community College
5001 Lake Land Boulevard
Mattoon, IL 61938 (Coles County)

YOU have a chance to help fight hunger in our communities, by taking part in the 4-H food-packaging event at Lake Land College on Saturday, January 20. Illinois 4-H members are used to pledging their “health to better living,” and a state initiative has members battling a new health threat: local hunger. On January 20, 4-H members, families and volunteers from Coles, Cumberland, Douglas, Moultrie and Shelby counties will come together to address the hunger challenge within the unit. A meal-packaging event will be held at Lake Land College, where volunteers, working in an assembly line, will package food ingredients into bags and seal them shut. These bags will then be delivered to local food pantries. The meals we package will stay local, helping families close to home! You must reserve your shift(s) in advance by contacting your local Extension office. This will ensure that we have enough, but not too many, workers for the number of meals we need to assemble. The sign-up deadline is Friday, Jan. 12.
