The Taste of Evanston event, sponsored by the Evanston Lighthouse Rotary Club this summer, was so successful that they were able to present two checks for $8500 each to Hunger Resource Network and the Hillside Food Pantry.

At Hunger Resource Network, this generous contribution will be used to purchase protein in the form of frozen chicken for those in need. We will be able to provide the protein portion of over 30,000 meals with these funds as we distribute and allocate it to more than 100 food pantries and shelters in the Chicago area.
We are grateful to everyone at the Evanston Lighthouse Rotary Club who helped make the event happen. You truly know how to take a BIG BITE OUT of HUNGER!
