So many unfortunate events in the last fifteen months have led to thousands of families struggling to find meals. This event is for families who need it most.

Trying to figure out where your family's next meal is coming from is a terrifying reality for too many residents in our community. There is a great need on the Rockford area, and throughout the pandemic, one partnership has helped fulfill that need.

Again, City First Church and the Northern Illinois Food Bank will be hosting another FREE FOOD DISTRIBUTION for families in need.
