Last year, the Life Center served over 50,000 hot meals, distributed more than 70,000 different food items from the food pantry and served about 6,000 people in the food pantry.
The Feinstein Foundation has issued a nationwide challenge for organizations to raise donations for the fight against hunger.
The ECLC will receive a financial gift from the Feinstein Foundation based on the amount of local donations. Monetary gifts and donations of food items will feed thousands locally while helping sustain the Emergency Food Pantry and Hot Meal Programs.
You can get involved with March for Hunger and help local families in need by bringing non-perishable goods to any of these drop-off locations:
Evansville Christian Life Center
Evansville Federal Credit Union

EVSC Center for Family, School, and Community Partnerships
