A Look Back at 5 Years in Geneva

30/Dec/16 / 06:00

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.

Thank you for an incredible 5 years!
