Feed The Need!™ Illinois is an informal coalition of Naperville area churches, congregations, and civic organizations working together to sponsor an annual Feed My Starving Children MobilePack in Naperville, Illinois.
Feed The Need!™ Illinois was started by four Naperville Lutheran churches in 2011, and sponsored the first annual community MobilePack held in February 2012. 178,848 meals were packed by 1144 volunteers in 2 days, enough food to feed 490 children for an entire year. Realizing what an amazing and generous community we have – the challenge to increase the packed meal count began!
In 2013 we expanded to 10 partner churches, moved to a larger facility and packed 453,600 meals over 3 days. In 2015 we surpassed 800,000 meals! We broke the one million meal mark in 2016 with the dedicated support of 5,000 volunteers that made it possible.
