How Effective Are Illinois Initiatives at Solving Hunger?
Illinois initiatives like Northern Illinois Food Bank and My Pantry Express (MPX) are progressing in the fight against food insecurity. In 2021, MPX received over 33,000 orders from families in need. We’ve already eclipsed that total, receiving well over 55,000 orders in 2022. With each order fulfilled, we’re doing our part in helping end hunger in Northern Illinois.
