Illinois: Online Tool Connects Residents to Food Resources
September 3, 2009
The Illinois Food and Nutrition Advocacy Partnership, a consortium of community partners that includes the AIDS Foundation of Chicago, has introduced a new Web site to help Chicagoland residents in need of food assistance. The online tool asks users to enter a ZIP code and answer questions about the ages of family members; it then provides a customized list of available programs including food pantries, sources for home-delivered meals and the locations where one may apply for food stamps. The site includes more than 1,100 listings of area resources. For more information, visit www.direct2food.org.
