FOOD FOR GREATER ELGIN WEBSITE
The fight against hunger is a priority for Grand Victoria Casino. With 1 in 7 people in the Elgin area being food insecure, we know that access to plentiful, nutritious food is life changing. To address this urgent need, we have partnered with Food For Greater Elgin (FFGE) in the 4th annual Chip in for Hunger golf tournament on Friday, September 14, 2018 and we invite you to join us in our quest to change the face of hunger.
The golf outing, hosted and underwritten by the Grand Victoria Casino, raises critical funds to help nearly 6,000 individuals facing hunger hardship—half of whom are children—each month.
Food for Greater Elgin, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, provides food security to more than 1,200 families per month in Elgin, South Elgin, and East Dundee. Access to food is plentiful, as FFGE is a full-service Client Choice Food Pantry open five days a week and available for clients to visit twice per calendar month. FFGE empowers its clients with the opportunity to shop with shopping carts, choosing fresh produce, meat, bread, dairy, and shelf-stable products. FFGE’s approach ensures client dignity, good nutrition, and reduced food waste.
Please join us in making our 4th Annual Chip In for Hunger an even greater success than last year’s fantastic outing! Help us stabilize lives with nutritious food and provide hope for a better tomorrow.
