"We envision healthier communities by connecting residents with local food,
teaching them about the benefits of nutritious food,
and showing them how to prepare that food."
JDLF Gives vision statement
What is JDLF Gives?
JDLF Gives is the charitable arm of Jo Daviess Local Foods. It's a non-profit committee working in a partnership with our fiscal agent, the Community Foundation of Jo Daviess County. JDLF Gives will expand access to sustainable local food through the Farm to Food Pantry program and Veggie Vouchers.
“The Farm to Food Pantry program is just the beginning,” said Cindy Tegtmeyer, committee chair. “The partnership with the Community Foundation will help us grow this program and start new programs. We want to move beyond the idea that any food is good food. If we are providing people in need with unhealthy food, that simply compounds their problems.”
Anyone can contribute to the JDLF Gives fund, in any amount. Make a gift online on the Community Foundation website or by mailing a check to: Community Foundation of Jo Daviess County, P.O. Box 77, Elizabeth, IL 61028 (with JDLF Gives in the check memo).
