The Illinois Hunger Coalition (IHC) seeks to #EndHungerNow and end hunger's underlying causes through community organizing, advocating for progressive public policies, and public education.
Founded in 1988, the IHC is celebrating 30 years as the only state-wide anti-hunger advocacy organization!
The Community Quality Council (CQC) meetings are meetings co-convened by the IHC and management staff from the Illinois Department of Human Service (IDHS) local offices.

The Summer Food Service Program is a federally funded program designed to fill the gap between school years and ensure kids have access to healthy food during the summer.
The program is free to anyone 18 years of age and younger, and to anyone with a disability 21 years of age and younger.
