Illinois has $28M to support local farmers and fight hunger in Illinois through USDA’s Local Food Purchasing Assistance (LFPA) program. LFPA aims to strengthen the Illinois food system over the next two years by purchasing food at fair market value from socially disadvantaged growers and producers. The best part? Community members in need will receive the food at no cost. Illinois is committed to sourcing 100% of LFPA products from socially disadvantaged growers and producers and ensuring culturally responsive, locally-grown foods are accessible to food-insecure communities. Let's create a collaborative network of food system support. Together, we can make a difference!
