Volunteer Today

There are so many people in the greater Peoria area that need food to sustain life. With your help, Heart of Illinois Harvest can continue its mission of providing local food agencies with the food necessary to meet the needs of the community.

How can I help?

Volunteers needed!

Volunteers should have a valid drivers license and be able to lift 20 lbs. minimum.

We need your help by donating surplus food to better meet the needs of the local hungry and to assist our local agencies who distribute this free food. This also prevents good food from going to our landfills. While the amount of food collected weekly is phenomenal, the need for food in our community continues to grow exponentially and more donations are needed in order to continue with our mission. Liabilities for food donors are protected by the Good Samaritan Food Donation Act.
