How your donation stays local

Written by 

LFI says that my donation helps feed people in my local community. But there is no food bank in my town - the one that serves my county is several hundred miles away. How, then, does my donation stay local?

The answer has a lot to do with semantics: and specifically, knowing the difference between a food bank and a food pantry.

Together, the 8 food bank members of Feeding Illinois serve every county in the state. Food banks run a number of programs designed to fight hunger, but their primary work is to acquire and distribute massive amounts (millions and millions of pounds) of food to local agencies throughout their service area - agencies like food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters. Each food bank has a network of hundreds of such agencies that rely on the food bank's immense stores of food to keep their shelves stocked.

So, if there is a food pantry or a soup kitchen in your town, it likely gets its food from the regional food bank assigned to your county. In fact, the food bank probably makes deliveries to that pantry, even if it's pretty far from the food bank's warehouse location. We have a handy-dandy clickable map on our website, here, that shows how the counties are divided up across the state.

And even if there's not a pantry near you, your food bank likely conducts other programs in your community - like the BackPack program to feed kids on weekends, or the Mobile Pantry program to bring food to areas with no access to food pantries. If you want more specific information about which local agencies receive support from your regional food bank, contact your regional food bank or visit their website. There are also some more statewide facts about hunger and food banks here.

When you give to Lawyers Feeding Illinois, your donation will support your regional food bank. We will use your zip code to determine which food bank region you live in, so your gift will stay local even if you support a team in another region. (Teams will still receive all applicable points for the funds they've raised.)

Want to see your donation in action? Contact your local food bank for a tour. It's really an incredible sight!

    To be closer to his house in Sarasota, Fla., the Reds named him recently as the [url=]Minnetonka メンズ 2013[/url] club's pitching rehabilitation coordinator at the Reds' minorleague facility in Sarasota.

    "I would prefer to thank members of your Reds' front office, players and coaches for their issues and support in the course of this troublesome time in our household," Ruhle's widow, Sue, stated in a statement released by the Reds.

    "I can not say adequate really good factors regarding the physicians and nursing staff at for their healthcare knowledge, comfort and care in the course of [url=]Minnetonka キッズ 楽天[/url] the last year. They have been a tremendous assistance method for Vern and our loved ones."

    Ruhle is survived by his wife, Sue, daughter Rebecca, son Kenny, parents Robert and Vivian, brothers Ron and Roy and sisters Suzanne, Judy, Mary and Jane.

    Ruhle, who played his 1st 4 seasons with the , spent seven of his 13 key league seasons using the Astros. Soon after he was released by Detroit, he signed a minorleague contract on March 29, 1978, with Houston and was a important member from the 1980 team that got within a game of reaching the Globe Series.

    "Vern was just a actual fine pitcher and, far more importantly, a actual [url=]ミネトンカ コーデ 秋[/url] fine guy," stated Astros president of baseball operations , the general manager in the 1980 club.

    "He created it due to the fact [url=]ディーゼル バッグ アウトレット[/url] he worked really hard at it," Dierker said. "He wasn't one of the most talented guy, but he worked difficult.

    O'Dea hires Al Hairston as boys basketball coach

    Coming from a coach who won 5 state titles in 12 years at Garfield, that says lots. No wonder Hairston jumped in the [url=]ヴィヴィアンウエストウッド 財布[/url] chance to turn out to be [url=]ヴィヴィアンウエストウッド 財布 メンズ[/url] the Irish's head man, which athletic director Monte Kohler announced Thursday.

    "I under no circumstances truly believed that I would have the chance to acquire involved within a prestigious program [url=]イヴサンローラン 財布 通販[/url] like the one particular at O'Dea," Hairston mentioned of your private college on Seattle's First Hill. "When it came on the market, it did pique my interest then I pursued it that way."

    From 1980 to 1991, Hairston's Garfield teams won 5 Class 4A (then AAA) state championships, played in nine state tournaments and won eight Metro League titles.

    Following [url=]イヴサンローラン 財布 通販[/url] establishing lofty expectations at Garfield, he left the Bulldogs to take more than [url=]ポールスミス 財布[/url] as Seattle University's head coach. Now, as Hairston returns to coaching just after six years as an administrator to take more than the system Phil Lumpkin built into a powerhouse, he admits it is a new feeling.

    "The coin has kind of flipped for me," Hairston stated. "I was around the other side, leaving a program, and now I am on the [url=]ポールスミス 財布[/url] side of going into a program that has [url=]オロビアンコ 財布[/url] been exceptionally effective. The expectations are that the program will continue to grow."

    Hairston, 64, replaces Jerry Carr, who led O'Dea to a 219 record and also a trip for the Class 3A state tournament during his one [url=]イヴサンローラン 財布 通販[/url] year as head coach. Carr took more than on an interim basis soon after Lumpkin died ahead of the start off from the season.

    "I have a large amount of respect for coach Lumpkin," Hairston said. "I've known him for a extended time and I genuinely respect the way he ran his system. I've frequently admired the O'Dea system from a distance."

    With players like Dustin Watts and Devante Williams returning for their senior seasons, Hairston is excited in regards to the [url=]ミズノ ランニングシューズ ウエーブ[/url] O'Dea hires Al Hairston as boys basketball coach [url=]オロビアンコ バッグ レディース[/url] future of O'Dea basketball.

    "It puts a massive [url=]オロビアンコ アウトレット 店舗[/url] O'Dea hires Al Hairston as boys basketball coach [url=]ボッテガ 財布 メンズ 店舗[/url] smile on my face to be in a position exactly where I can step in and, not necessarily rebuild a system, but just generally reload and preserve going forward," he mentioned.

    Hairston will continue to serve as athletic coordinator for Seattle Public Schools till July 31. It really is unclear who will fill his function.

    Hairston has also coached at the University of Washington, Seattle Central Neighborhood [url=]ミズノウォーキングシューズ 販売店[/url] College, and Rainier Beach and KentMeridian higher schools. He played college basketball at Bowling Green and was selected [url=]ボッテガ 財布 メンズ 長財布[/url] by the Sonics in the fifth round of the 1968 NBA draft, playing two seasons with Seattle.

    "You couldn't have picked a far better guy," stated Rainier Beach coach Mike Bethea, who considers Hairston certainly one of his mentors. "Wow. They got a steal with that one."

    Kohler mentioned O'Dea received a lot of interest in the position and administrators took their time before creating a selection. The school also wanted to employ a coach who could also fill Lumpkin's position as a physicaleducation teacher.

    "He's by no means been especially far away in the game and we're very [url=]ヴィヴィアンウエストウッド 財布[/url] excited about hiring Al Hairston as our basketball coach," Kohler mentioned.

    Bethea said Hairston shares countless with the very same coaching traits with Lumpkin, generating him the correct particular person at the excellent time for you to take over the Irish's program. But, he also admitted that what is fine news for O'Dea is bad news for the rest from the Metro League.

    "He has such a wealth of experience, has coached on each level and knows his stuff," Bethea said. "He's the type of guy exactly where, wow, he's going to take that plan Silence is golden for new line coach Gibbs [url=]ボッテガ 財布 人気[/url] O'Dea hires Al Hairston as boys basketball coach [url=]ミズノ ランニングシューズ ウエーブ[/url] to a different [url=]Paul Smith バッグ メンズ[/url] level."

    Hollywood studios have started experimenting with licensing deals with Chinese video portals after major ones such as Youku and Tudou lost lawsuits and began removing copyrighted content from their sites. Youku recently licensed the Warner Bros. film "Inception," which users can pay five yuan, about 75 cents, to watch. Tudou is to start streaming TV programs including "Desperate Housewives" and "Lost" in a deal with Disney Media Distribution. But shadowy new sites continue to pop up, and pirated DVDs are easily bought online. Whether the concerns of domestic directors are enough to alter the political calculus of China's leaders on piracy remains to be seen.
