Delivering Hope to
Peoria County
Heart of Illinois Harvest (HOIH) is a not-for-profit food rescue program that transports surplus food to local agencies for free distribution to those in need on a daily basis. Covered by the Good Samaritan Act, grants, donations, and in-kind service providers allow us to run our operation. We have approximately 60 HOIH volunteers that collect about 6 tons per week of surplus food from restaurants, grocery stores, hospitals, bakeries, schools, wholesalers, gardeners (fresh produce), and other food donors in the Peoria area.
