Food insecurity is a pandemic that continues to impact communities across the country. Beyond Hunger serves 13 zip codes, not just the Oak Park area. However, 15-20% of BH recipients live in Oak Park-River Forest. There is need in our own backyards. Beyond Hunger offers kids programs, cooking classes, home delivery, nutritional & health education and more. The final round of COVID-related SNAP benefits are expiring soon so donatons are needed more than ever. Toilet paper, menstral products and diapers cannot be purchased with SNAP benefits and no one should have to chose between paying a utility bill and buying toilet paper.
