Extension receives 2019 Partner of the Year Award
University of Illinois Extension received the 2019 Community Partner of the Year Award from the Eastern Illinois Foodbank. This award is given to a community organization each year who has partnered with the Foodbank to help further the mission of alleviating hunger in Eastern Illinois communities.
Extension works to end hunger for Illinois families
One in nine Illinois residents do not know where their next meal is coming from, including 15.7 percent of children. University of Illinois Extension helps fill in these gaps for Illinois families through programs on nutrition education, 4-H youth development, and horticulture.
"One of the things that I really enjoy is educating folks how to work with their landscape, how to tweak it...kind of getting them over the 'OMG!' moments."
