As we look forward to the new year, we reflect on what a great year 2016 has been — including the 5-year anniversary of our West Suburban Center! September 27, 2016 marked the five-year anniversary of opening our West Suburban Center in Geneva.
In order to meet the skyrocketing needs of neighbors in our community, we launched a capital campaign in 2008 to build a new Center. At the time our new Center opened in 2011, we were providing less than 30 million meals annually. Our hope was that a new Center would enable us to double our distribution – and in just five years, we did! We exceeded 62 million meals this year.
Since opening the West Suburban Center, we have distributed a total of more than 236 million meals to our hungry neighbors. Your support has been vital as we expanded to meet the rising needs of families in Northern Illinois.
