The Dwelling Place offering Emergency Food Assistance program

Local News

DANVILLE, Ill. (WCIA) — The Dwelling Place is starting an Emergency Food Assistance program for people and families facing food insecurity.

A press release says Vermilion County is “blessed” with several food pantries, but they are on a set schedule. It adds often times people are still needing food between distributions.

The Dwelling Place Emergency Food Assistance program fills that gap, the release says.

It also says referrals are required and must come from one of the following:

  • School social worker or home liaison
  • East Central Illinois Community Action Agency
  • Love INC
  • Salvation Army
  • Church pastor or employee
  • Any agency serving homeless or low-income people

The Dwelling Place says households will be served only once every 3 months, and food for 2-4 days will be given to eligible recipients. Eligibility will be determined by the Dwelling Place.
