ELGIN, Ill. – State Rep. Anna Moeller, D-Elgin, will join with the Northern Illinois Food Bank and DoorDash for a Day of Service to end food insecurity in suburban communities.
“Food insecurity is a problem many in our community and in our state experience on a daily basis,” Moeller said. “The supply of food is there, but connecting it with communities in need is where our support and focus needs to be. Northern Illinois Food Bank and Doordash’s event will be a great opportunity to help end food insecurity, but more work needs to be done so that no one has to go to bed hungry.”
Moeller will be speaking with those in attendance regarding the state of food insecurity locally, how food banks can change the landscape of food accessibility and helping pack boxes to be delivered by DoorDash employees.
Food delivery will be accomplished through DoorDash’s Project DASH uses the company’s food delivery system to partner with government agencies and non-profit organizations to tackle food insecurity and waste through efficient transportation from food sources to those in need.
The event will be held at Northern Illinois Food Bank’s Geneva location at 273 Dearborn Ct. in Geneva on Friday, Sept. 9 at 10 a.m.
